Description Chandrashekhar. Korlahalli 2003-08-26 11:07:06 UTC
With the following steps problem can be reproduced.

1. start gnome session, start terminal window, start gnopernicus, & wait 
till you hear the sound.

2. start gcaltool application from application menu. 
4. select scientific calculator from view menu.

5. press ALT +N TAB key, Octal mumeric mode hilighted, but screen reader 
reads it as " October".
6. For other numeric mode is proumced in short as " bin, Dec, Hex" etc,

Instead of that if screen reader could read as " Binary, Decimal, 
HexaDecimal", this will make proper sense to the blind user.
Comment 1 Rich Burridge 2003-08-26 14:55:55 UTC
Does the problem occur with this version (with tooltips on)?

The tooltip values for the four base controls are:

    N_("Set numeric base to binary (base 2)"),
    N_("Set numeric base to octal (base 8)"),
    N_("Set numeric base to decimal (base 10)"),
    N_("Set numeric base to hexadecimal (base 16)")
Comment 2 bill.haneman 2003-08-26 15:55:36 UTC
Rich: the tooltips shouldn't be spoken aloud during normal keynav.  I
am assuming from your comments in bug 120755 that the accessible-name
of the 'Oct' key is now 'octal', is that correct?  If so then in the
new version of gcalctool this bug shouldn't be present.

Comment 3 Rich Burridge 2003-08-26 16:05:47 UTC
I should have been clearer. There is code in gcalctool
that will call atk_object_set_name() for each of the
calculator buttons. By default, it will use the tooltip
text as the accessible name except in cases where this
is too long or is not appropriate. The randon number button
was such a case. Does that clarify things?
Comment 4 Chandrashekhar. Korlahalli 2003-09-04 10:26:04 UTC
I am using gcaltool version 4.3.2. the following are the observations.
with too tip enabled.
This problem van reproduced in two ways.
1. press ALT + O, then screen reader teads it as October.
2. with the key navigation, move  focus from left to right, fiest it 
reads content of the tool tips, the reads as October.
with tool tip disabled.
1. Prss ALT + O key, screen teader reads as " October"/
Pls. revert back to me for  more information. I will try to provide 
as much as possible.
Comment 5 Rich Burridge 2003-09-16 20:49:36 UTC
Accessible names have now been added to each of the 
widgets in the mode panel when in Scientific mode.
Checked into CVS HEAD. Fixed in v4.3.6.
Comment 6 Chandrashekhar. Korlahalli 2004-03-29 08:52:29 UTC
This bug has been verified in gcaltool version 4.3.51, cbs head build.
The problem has been fixed.
hence, this bug can be closed.
Thanks & Regards,
