Let me introduce myself

Dear members and developers,
my name is Pavel Vlček. I am music composer and boox / poetry writer.
I have a lot of experience in HTML and little experience in PHP and
very little experience in Python. I am from Czech Republic. I am using
Gnome for 8 years now and I am happy user. I am blind, so I am using
screen reader Orca and my primary distro is Sonar / Manjaro, because
it gets every new version of Gnome.
I signed up to gnome-accessibility list and devel as user. As user,
who wants to watch accessibility development and discuss with
developers about Gnome accessibility, if it's possible.
My English isn't 100% good, but I am learning and learning it.
Thank you,
Pavel Vlček

Accessibility Release Notes for GNOME 3.20

Hi there !

GNOME 3.20 is around the corner and I would like to know what are the more important features or fixes of annoying bugs you think can be worth to mention in the release notes. It is a while since we don't include anything about accessibility there, but we can change that :-)

The original idea was asking to add your info to the "what's new in accessibility" section in wiki.


However, you need to ask the adminitrators for permissions to write in the wiki because a recent spam attack. So you can reply to the list or write to me if you prefer. Maybe replying to this email is easiest for your and other people can interact.

The info can be just cool work already done, or a planed and pretty near to be done.  Just a line and maybe an url of the bug report if this adds some extra info.

Thank you in advance for your time,

    -- Juanjo Marin

a way to log all my mouse events?

Hi,

Can anybody give me a quick and dirty way to log all my mouse events? I 
want to see what the pattern of movement is when I go to select or click 
on something. With my hand control I'll often have trouble positioning 
mouse's pointer and it would be interesting to see what precisely is 
going on.

ATK 2.18.0 released

A new major version of the stable version of ATK has just been released.

About ATK
=========

GNOME provides support for accessibility devices using the ATK
framework. This framework defines a set of interfaces to which
graphical interface components adhere. This allows, for instance,
screen readers to read the text of an interface and interact with its
controls. ATK support is built into GTK+ and the rest of the GNOME
platform, so any application using GTK+ will have reasonable
accessibility support for free.

Nonetheless, you should be aware of accessibility issues when when
developing your applications. Although GTK+ interfaces provide
reasonable accessibility by default, you can often improve how well
your program behaves with accessibility tools by providing additional
information to ATK. If you develop custom widgets, you should ensure
that they expose their properties to ATK.

News (compared with 2.16.0)
===========================

* Documentation:
  * Replace mentions of 'state-changed' with 'state-change'.
  * Fixed some tiny typos
* Build/win32 improvements:
  * Use Pattern Rules on build/Makefile-newvs.am
  * Tidying and cleaning .vcxproj.filters generation
    * Fixes Bug 748176: out-of-tree distcheck fails in build/win32
  * Removed GCC requirement
  * Removed check for python
  * Rename testrules_msvc.mak
  * Add Common Autotools Module for MSVC Projects
  * "install" Projects renamed to "atk-install"

* Misc: set proper file permission to source files

Getting Started

I would like to start contributing to gnome accessibility code, I am
using gnome on CentOS 7 and I tried following the "Quick Start page"
but there is no System menu so that attempt was short lived. Could I
get some help on how to get started?

Marketing: talk on Thursday for EdLUG

Hi all,

Apologies for the cross post. I am doing a talk at EdLUG on Thursday about hacking accessibility in GNOME. I plan to publish the presentation audio and slides afterwards on planet.gnome.org (after it is done) but in the meantime, since it's a "marketing" thing, I figure I should ask for some feedback in advance from my fellow comrades on the slides to make sure I don't inadvertently misrepresent the project or a11y team.[1] Let me know if you have any questions/comments/concerns/suggestions. It may not seem like it but the talk works out to be around 20 minutes long as it stands.

Lastly, assuming all seems good, I also want to give a huge nod to Mario who's fantastic blog I have lifted some comprehensive ideas from for this talk.[2] Also Marina, who has more or less provided the awesome LibreOffice template which was (also lifted) from wiki.gnome.org.[3] 

Thanks,

Magdalen
