Meeting summary

  1. Issues Related to 3.12 (joanie, 14:06:21)
    1. This week GNOME 3.12.1 was released, and it included some accessibility improvements. (joanie, 14:07:06)
    2. Evince: bug 724965 fixes were included on 3.12.1 so now there is a way to get the info for any given page, and not only the current page, useful for "SayAll" navigation with screen readers. (joanie, 14:07:19)
    3. GnomeShell: bug 726670 fixes were included. This is minor, but now the elements at the "windows" container at the overview has proper name and role (joanie, 14:07:35)
    4. Joanie did the 3.12.1 release of Orca which included some fixes for previously-missed refactor-introduced regressions. (joanie, 14:08:06)
    5. mgorse made an at-spi2-atk 2.12.1 release with a fix for bug 684076, cleaning up sockets again on exit assuming we exit normally (mgorse, 14:09:34)
    6. jhernandez did not roll a .1 for accerciser, but will try to include a few fixes for .2 (jhernandez, 14:10:04)
    7. There was a gjs-introduced change that causes gnome-shell to crash on launch of the magnifier. This was fixed in gjs. (See bug 727824.) (joanie, 14:10:40)

  2. Plans for 3.14: Wayland (joanie, 14:14:41)
    1. Piñeiro has no updates (joanie, 14:14:51)
    2. Joanie has no updates (joanie, 14:14:59)
    3. mgorse has no updates (mgorse, 14:15:12)
    4. jhernandez looked at accerciser+wayland - it requires some love (jhernandez, 14:16:09)

  3. Plans for 3.14: Feature proposals (joanie, 14:17:12)
    1. Piñeiro and Joanie have no updates (joanie, 14:17:22)
    2. https://wiki.gnome.org/ThreePointThirteen/Features (jhernandez, 14:18:56)
    3. https://wiki.gnome.org/ThreePointThirteen/Features/ (clown, 14:19:00)

  4. Plans for 3.14: Other stuff? (joanie, 14:20:37)
    1. Joseph will consider looking for a slice of time to try to create the UI for tinting based on Alan's wire frames, and discuss further with Alan. (clown, 14:24:27)

  5. W3C updates (joanie, 14:25:20)
    1. Two features of aria 1.1 from this weeks teleconference. (clown, 14:25:55)
    2. 1. Add a role that captures the "generic" nature of <div> and <span> (clown, 14:26:14)
    3. this is to provide that kind of role for markup languages that do not have a <div> or <span> element. (clown, 14:26:40)
    4. 2. Currently aria-busy is only allowed on live regions, e.g. a status line, or a marquee. (clown, 14:27:16)
    5. In 1.1 we want to allow it to be used elsewhere. (clown, 14:27:39)
    6. but, actually, the 1.0 spec says that aria-busy is a global and can be used on any element regardless of role. (clown, 14:28:09)
    7. so this is mostly correcting some text about live regions that was misguided in the 1.0 spec. (clown, 14:28:43)

  6. Marketing (joanie, 14:29:59)
    1. Juanjo's updated the AT-SPI entry in the wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AT-SPI (jjmarin, 14:30:11)
