Re: [orca-list] heads up. liblouis 3.2.0 breaks orca and an issue with deadbeef audio p


Inaccessible playlist view of DeaDBeeF is a known issue.
Ideally we would like someone interested and knowledgeable enough to try implementing ATK support for that widget as that is a custom widget. It's implemented like that mainly because performance with all similar GTK built-in widgets was an issue. This can reportedly handle up to 50K items in the list, thus being able to load really damn huge playlists.
A while ago I was trying to poke at this but I don't yet understand this part very well and I am not able to implement it.
If there is anyone able to do that I would be happy to donate little to that effort as I would really love to have better access to DeaDBeeF.

Hi all

Liblouis 3.2.0 was just released this past Friday, on the sixteenth of june. I updated a local copy of the arch Linux package of liblouis to use the new version, and orca promptly wouldn’t start the next time my computer restarted. I’m not sure of the exact error because obviously without speech I couldn’t capture a debug log, but downgrading  liblouis fixed it. This occurred in both orca stable and orca master. Also, I’m having a lot of issues with the deadbeef audio player. IThe playlist area where the songs you’re currently playing is completely inaccessible. Not even the “where am I” command can figure out what sort of control it is. I’m assuming it’s a list or table, but I’m not positive. It uses gtk2, so I was hoping joanie would be willing to take a look to see if she can figure out a fix in orca, otherwise I’ll have to file a bug with deadbeef. I’m on my windows tablet, hence the windows 10 mail blurb in the message footer.
