Test features that make Fedora usable by people with disabilities of physical challenges. Even if you don't personally need to use accessibility features, it is still important to test them for others.

How to test

  1. In GNOME, open Settings -> Accessibility.
  2. While the Settings application has focus, press F1. A Help application should be started and the Accessibility chapter should be automatically selected. Open a few random accessibility-articles to confirm they are displayed properly.
  3. Back in Settings -> Accessibility, navigate through the sub-menus and test each option, make sure it works correctly.
    • One of the available options is Typing -> Enable by Keyboard. Once enabled, you can test it this way: Pressing Shift 5 times should toggle Sticky Keys. Holding Shift for 8 seconds should toggle Slow Keys. A confirmation dialog should display in both cases.
  4. Enable Settings -> Accessibility -> Accessibility Menu. Verify that you have now an accessibility menu directly on the GNOME top panel.
  5. Test each item from the panel menu, it should have the same effect as when enabled from the Settings app.
  6. Log out, so that you're back at the login screen. There should be an accessibility menu on the top bar. Test all options, to make sure they also work at the login screen.

Expected Results

  1. All accessibility functions should turn on and off successfully and perform the expected function. Their effect should be immediate, with no re-login necessary.
  2. Please report all failures to the GNOME tracker.
