Re: wishlist: tamtam at login is blindfriendlier than silence ...

Hi All:

Accessible login has worked on Solaris and OpenSolaris for a long time. We recently uncovered some issues in development builds but have fixed them. The gdm maintainer has also made some upstream fixes (or is at least working on them) recently.

Hi Mario,

Have you enabled accessibility for the gdm user???
If you use gnome-speech, the gdm-user should be added to group audio as well.

On my machine (lenny) ctrl+s does nothing.
Can you explain your steps to get orca running in gdm?

As far as Orca talking at login, it was my understanding that
accessible login under Debian-based distros was still broken.
Is there a bug report for this? I can't find any on http://bugs.debian.org/gdm
There is, AFAIK no bug for this, but the "problem" is known for a long time.
I basically never filed a bug since I never figured out what it actually
is.  When the accesskeys module is activated in gdm, you can configure
to launch Orca with a certain key combination, and the
trigger actually works.  However, Orca hangs with the "Welcome to Orca"
message being displayed in braille.  I am really wondering if
this actually works on any other distro.

Bugs that are not reported can not magically be fixed.
Thats true of course.  I am just not 100% sure if this is a upstream issue,
or if the packaging is really at fault.
