Accessibility update – Kickoff, Kicker and KWin improvements

System & Utilities

Chrys took up the role of coordinator, fixer and new master of KDE accessibility, which I think is just fantastic. We have been working on what he decided to be most important, mostly chrys fixing issues to make things work with Plasma and screen readers. After getting Orca to read desktop icons he spent quite some time to improve the various start menus.

With so much fresh energy around I started poking at KWin, which was a bit scary, to be honest. It was fun to read code I hadn’t looked at before. In the end, after I spent a while working on a huge work-around, it turned out that we could enable the task switcher to work with relatively little code added. The main issue was that KWin does really not want to give focus to the task switcher. My first attempt was to write sub-classes of QAccessibleInterface for everything in KWin. That started to work, but during some debugging I realized that KWin was actually creating the regular representations for its UI, it was just not properly announcing them to Orca. Thus I threw away my almost complete prototype. At least I verified that it’s possible to create an entire Qt UI for screen readers only, disconnected from the actual UI. Thanks to QAccessible::installFactory it is nowadays pretty easy to instantiate custom representations (subclasses of QAccessibleInterface). Once that was done, I started over and made the task switcher think it’s an active window without letting X11 or Wayland know. That way we get the right dbus messages sent to Orca, when alt-tabbing through the windows. Thanks David, Martin, Roman and Vlad for your input :)

More work is needed on Plasma when it comes to keyboard usability – getting the focus onto the panel and the various notification areas. I’m sure some great ideas are already being worked on, but I can see this easily as a blocker going forward. Configuring the network, checking the battery status and other tasks are really important after all.

I wrote the basics for Kate to work with screen readers in 2014 and it seems like there are some improvements needed when working with Orca, luckily we got some help from Joanie (who maintains Orca) to figure out what goes wrong when navigating by lines. Now it’s just to verify the findings and get the issues sorted out.

If you have a bit of time and want to help, we need someone with good English skills to help clean up the wiki. Good written instructions are really helpful when getting blind users to try Plasma for the first time. We’d also be happy if more people joined in testing and improving things. Join the KDE Accessibility mailing list to join the fun.

28.02.2008 www/seamonkey - 1.1.8
- Update to 1.1.8. [1] - Add "--with-default-mozilla-five-home=${PREFIX}/lib/${MOZILLA}" to fix other applications in the runtime. Some applications required to have set MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME or/and LD_LIBRARY_PATH to make it works in the runtime. Now, it's no longer need to set these variables, which this flag takes care of it. The MOZILLA_FIVE_HOME still works with this flag if someone need to use different one. I have learned about this flag from RPM, Debian, Gentoo ebuild and other packages.

VMware to acquire Zimbra Posted by Steve Herrod Chief Technology Officer In August, I published a blog post explaining our acquisition of SpringSource, the popular open source Java development framework focused on simplifying the task of application development. Furthermore, we liked how SpringSource targets this application development simplicity for both on-premise and cloud deployment targets. Today I’m pleased to announce that we have entered into a definitive agreement to acquire Zimbra from Yahoo.  While Zimbra’s domain is different than that of SpringSource, there are severa...
19.04.2010 Top 5 Planet V12n blog posts week 15
Top 5 Planet V12n blog posts week 15 What a week. Not only did I start on one of the first cloud engagements in EMEA but also one of the largest clouds was implemented in Iceland and because of this (ash) cloud I got stuck in the UK. I wanted to get the weekly top 5 done in the morning but ended up spending my morning on something else and the afternoon walking around in London. I did manage to squeeze in a couple of minutes this morning to get this article out though, and just before you start reading don't forget the vExpert "awards" for 2010!

21.05.2010 Exchange 2010 Disk I/O on vSphere
Exchange 2010 Disk I/O on vSphere In the first part of this series on Exchange 2010 on vSphere the focus was scale-up performance of a single Mailbox Server VM.  The results showed performance was great across all points tested, ranging up to 8000 users.  This article will take a look at disk I/O which is an important aspect of Exchange performance. Enhancements made to Exchange 2010 have resulted in a reduction in disk I/Os per second (IOPS) in comparison to previous versions.  This reduction is reported by Microsoft to be as big as 70% in some cases.  Exchange 2010 makes more efficient ...

04.11.2011 Comparing ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0 Scaling Performance
Comparing ESXi 4.1 and ESXi 5.0 Scaling Performance In previous articles on VROOM! we used VMmark 2 to investigate the effects of altering a single hardware component, such as a storage array or server model, in a vSphere cluster. In contrast to these earlier studies, we now examine the effects of upgrading the hosts’ software from ESXi 4.1 to ESXi 5.0 on the performance of a VMmark 2 cluster. vSphere 5 includes many new features and virtual machine enhancements, the details of which can be found here. To the IT professional weighing the costs and benefits of upgrading their existing infra...
