Minutes for 2007/02/27
- Steve Lee, Janina Sajka
- Pete Brunet, Mike Squillace, Michael Stewart, Pete Parente, Itoh-san (Takashi Itoh), Barry Feigenbaum, Sueann Nichols, Larry Weiss, Aaron Leventhal, Cathy Laws
- From Janina: The new name of FSGA is Open Accessibility when spoken or Open A11y when written.
- First code drop to Alexander Surkov
- For GUI, having problems building against pyxpcom
- Using a Minefield (Mozilla trunk build) extention as a workaround until standalone xulrunner environment is working
- Steve Lee is also working on a xulrunner project and he is entering bugs
- Mike Squillace has been using xulrunner v18.104.22.168; offered to help Michael
- Notes 8 IA2 Server should be available by March 8
- Capture and organization of code samples
- Sueann has an idea of what fragments she wants and will provide a first draft of what is needed; needs about 2 weeks to get started on that
- The Mozilla code is too layered; not suitable for developer guide samples
- SWT is not suituable. It's all implemented in Java as a JNI front end - ugly C code - all the real code is in Java
- Would Qt or Notes 8 be a possible source for code samples?
- Maybe need to start from scratch and create a sample server with a button, list, container, text, slider (fires events as value changes)
- Need a volunteer
- Alexander Surkov is waiting for approval to drop IDL files into the Mozilla code base
- Alexander created a mapping from IA2 to Gecko APIs at http://wiki.mozilla.org/Accessibility/IA2ToGecko
- First use of FF IA2 implementation will likely be NVDA; NVDA needs the IA2 caret support
- ATVs will want IA2 to support live regions
- Going out to alphaWorks early next week
- Can now expose objects for self drawn children
- Can now do end to end call from UnoInspect tool to virtual children. The children don't have a native widget but have a fully functioning accessible.
- AT-SPI changes
- none this week
- Other issues?
