Looking at the screenshot for KDE 3.2, it looks as if the main problem
are unnamed widget (and custum widgets, of course).
Well, if you look into what at-poke displays for GNOME applications you
will see that only widgets with textual contents have a name, so e.g., the
panels do not need a name. Of course I cannot tell how much work is to be
done by only looking on screen shots.
Fixing all widget names in KDE will be a lot of work, but making KDE
accessibility aids as KMouth, KMag and KMousetool fully accessible will
be easier. Do you think it is a realistic chance to make these apps
fully accessible within KDE 3.2?
Not within KDE 3.2 (which is already in feature freeze). If I heard it
correctly the screenshot for KDE 3.2 was taken with a patched Qt 3.3. Here
I think Harald can tell more.
Concerning Accessible Interface implementations for the KDE widgets we do
not have any chance for KDE 3.2. Maybe it would be possible to provide an
extra package that provides the necessary implementations. (Do the three
accessibility aids use only standard KDE widgets?)
