Accessibility in KDE 4.10 and beyond

The history

The first tries to join forces with GNOME to build up one common accessibility stack for our beloved desktops pre-date back to 10 years ago.

A year later the solution became more concrete and finally made it as the QAccessible framework into Qt 4.0 in ~2004.

The CTRL+M break-me option

A comment at the Calligra Words blog-entry asked about re-adding the CTRL+M "Hide Menubar" option back to Calligra Words (and the KDEPim-applications).

That is a *very* bad idea.

MSOOXML: Why oh why?

Some like to make a joke of OpenOffice.org coming with around 8 different string-implementations and comparing that with what we are having in Calligra with QString. But when we worked back then in OASIS to form what later became the ISO OpenDocument standard we left such implementation details out.

Calligra Words mini-sprint day #2

Today is the second and last day of the Calligra Words mini-sprint. After spending yesterdays first day on planing and implementation of decisions made we spent today on solving all kind of problems that showed up since then.

In particular today we land;
* Fix wrong placement of anchored object if the object is anchored in a paragraph that spans two pages, and the anchor is in the part of the paragraph that is on the first page.
* Be sure to only try position an anchor once per layout-run.
* Implement anchor stacking.

Calligra Words mini-sprint day #1

Actually it's day #2 already since Boemann and myself already started hacking away yesterday evening when I arrived at his place in Denmark.

The main goal of our small mini-sprint is to address the various problems we have within Calligra Words with anchors and anchoring objects and text running around such anchored objects.
