Description Joanmarie Diggs (IRC: joanie) 2011-05-28 19:58:42 UTC
Subject pretty much says it all. At the moment, we cannot enable accessibility support by default due to the performance hit experienced by users -- even when no ATs are running. This must change.

[Resetting QA Contact to newly introduced "at-spi-maint@gnome.bugs". 
Reason: So far it was impossible to watch changes in at-spi bug reports without following all the specific persons (Li Yuan, Bill Haneman, Jeff Wai, ...) and also their activity outside of at-spi reports.

IMPORTANT: Anyone interested in following all bug activity (including all maintainers) must watch the "at-spi-maint@gnome.bugs" dummy user by adding it to the 'Users to watch' list under Preferences->Email preferences. This is also the default procedure nowadays in GNOME when setting up new products.]
Comment 2 Joanmarie Diggs (IRC: joanie) 2012-10-16 07:57:48 UTC
Accessibility support is always on in 3.6. In between the filing of this bug and that change, various contributors have been opening new performance related bugs and fixing them. I anticipate that shall continue. Therefore, this bug is no longer needed.
