Re: [orca-list] Object mnemonics and Braille

Hi Mike: is being used to track this feature. From that bug:

"One way to do this would be to look at the attributes of the text and use the text attributes feature to represent the attribute in braille. When I look at menu and menu items in gnome-terminal, for example, I see the "underline:low" attribute being used to paint the mnemonic.

Doing this for all objects *might* be as easy as moving the getAttributeMask from the Text class to the Component class in"

I've started using the speak object mnemonics feature in orca (I am using orca 2.27.5) and was wondering whether it would be possible for a similar feature to be added to Braille output.

Now I am not so certain on how this could be done. One way would be just add the information on to the Braille output (like it is added to speech output). Possibly a better option (if possible) is for orca to underline the letter (like is is done visually in menus). However this second one I could imagine to be more difficult to implement as it sometimes isn't just a letter from the item but rather a keyboard shortcut (eg. in the orca preferences the "OK" button is alt+o). May be that example wasn't the best, alt_o is to do with the "O" in the "OK" and for some platforms (I don't know about GTK) the O might be underlined visually to indicate the shortcut key, but you hopefully get what I am getting at.

Any views?
