#967 closed Bug (invalid)

[a11y] Transmission's GUI table is inaccessible to persons with disabilities.

Reported by: Javier Owned by: charles
Priority: Normal Milestone: None Set
Component: GTK+ Client Version: 1.21
Severity: Normal Keywords:


In Transmission's GUI the table where the list of torrents currently active is not accessible to assistive technologies.

When you navigate this table with an assistive technology like Orca screen reader, e.g. give focus to it and up and down arrow to navigate the table, no information is presented to the user via speech or braille.

In order to have this information presented to the user and the user can use this application 100% this component should expose accessible information to the AT-SPI Infrastructure.

Would be very nice to have this bug fixed so many people with disabilities can use Transmission. You can see more details about Orca configure/use at

Javier, the links are helpful, but I still feel like I don't have a firm grasp on what's needed code-wise. Do you have any sample code available, or can you point me in the direction of another application with a custom treeview cell renderer that supports a11y?

Closing due to incompleteness. I agree with the goals of this ticket but need more information on how to implement them.
