[orca-list] [Fwd: Announcing Orca v2.19.92]

Hey Everyone:

This is the candidate for the GNOME 2.20 release.  If you get a chance,
please download it, check it out, and send comments to
orca-list gnome org or log bugs at http://bugzilla.gnome.org.  We've got
one week to get show stopper problems fixed for GNOME 2.20, though I
hope none exist.  Your help here will go a long way.

Many many thanks to the entire community for their help and work on Orca
for GNOME 2.20.  We've really come a long way since GNOME 2.18 just a
few months ago, and I hope to be able to see us cover just as much
distance for GNOME 2.22 just a few months from now.  

You all made a difference.  Thanks!

* What is Orca?

Orca is a free, open source, flexible, and extensible screen reader
that provides access to the graphical desktop via user-customizable
combinations of speech, braille, and/or magnification.  Orca
development has been led by the Sun Microsystems, Inc., Accessibility
Program Office via continued engagement with its end users and
generous contributions from wonderful community members.

You can also read more about Orca at http://live.gnome.org/Orca.

* What's changed for Orca v2.19.92?

2.19.92 - 03-Sep-2007


* Fix for bug 456970 - Orca says "0 items" for tree tables that use
  NODE_CHILD_OF relationship.

* Fix for bug 471220 - Gaim's prefixChatMessage setting should have
  option to only prefix non-focused tabs.  Now if you enable the
  app-specific setting to speak chatroom name, it will only speak it
  when the message is not in your current room.

* Work on bug 472377 - Need to fix braille for radio buttons and
  checkboxes in HTML content.  There are two issues: 1) repetition of
  labels with radio buttons and 2) The label and name of radio buttons
  and checkboxes needs to be reversed.  1) is easy and now done.  
  2) will take some thought and will likely wait until after
  GNOME 2.20.

* Fix for bug 472407 - Orca doesn't always announce new messages in
  unfocused tabs in Pidgin.


* Fix for bug 469686 - Sanity check needed in gecko.getHeadingLevel.

* One more "check" related to the fix for bug 470332 - Can no longer
  arrow to push buttons in FF3.  The original fix exposed a Mozilla
  bug which was causing Orca to hang when it encountered (un)ordered
  lists.  See bug 470853.  This update should prevent the hang while
  we're waiting for the fix.

* Fix for bug 471537 - We need to find a way to identify truly
  "focusable" elements in FF3.

* Fix for bug 471955 - Orca does not provide access to state changes
  in HTML radio buttons in FF3.

* Work on bug 472029 - Cannot arrow into autocompletes in HTML forms
  if Orca is controlling the caret.  There's an outstanding bug in
  Firefox that can cause some odd behavior with autocompletes.
  Monitor bug 472029 to track it.
