GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 756514
See if we can do something to better work around non-responsive apps
Last modified: 2018-02-08 13:05:13 UTC
Orca right now has code to try to step around apps becoming non-responsive, i.e. by not spitting up on the "The process appears to be hung." GError we get from AT-SPI2.
While we could keep adding check after check after check, it can be a game of whac-a-mole if the app itself claims to be dead. Perhaps there's something better we could do. Maybe flushing the events, some call to AT-SPI2 (see for instance bug 750531), something else?
Mike: I'd like your thoughts on this please and thank you. :)
