IAccessible2 SIG Conference Call Minutes 2008/10/07

  1. Regrets: none
  2. Attendees: Pete Brunet, Jamie Teh, Mick Curran
  3. Prior meeting minutes - approved
  4. IAAction::keyBinding
    • It was felt that the second item in the proposed keyBinding triple is not needed. See the updated commentary in bug 177.
  5. IAValue
    • During the last meeting Jamie pointed out that for each role, it should be documented what implementations should do. For example, progress bars should always provide the programmable values as a value from 0 to 100. Currently, for progress bars, when implementing MSAA's get_accValue most apps provide a string from 0% to 100%. However, Trolltech's Qt uses values greater than 100 and doesn't include % in the string.
    • Jamie had also suggested documenting use cases for other controls.
    • During this meeting it was agreed that the min and max return values are adequate to know the range and that further documentation is not needed.
    • However, the need for user consumable values is still needed as documented in bug 182.
  6. IAHyperlink::valid
    • It was felt that IAHyperlink::valid is of no use and should be deprecated.
    • Neither NVDA, JAWS, or Window-Eyes use it.
    • It will be deprecated via bug 185.
  7. BZR
    • Jamie has verified that the source IDL in the NVDA BZR system matches with the v1.0.2 IDL on the IA2 site.
    • Jamie said that an option to waiting to get the Linux Foundation BZR code updated from Pete's code would be to pull the source from the NVDA BZR tree.
  8. Proxy DLL
    • Jamie sent his RC file to Pete, but Pete has not yet processed it. This is to make sure the correct RC file is provided for bug 110.
