Since rolename refactor happened in Orca side, Orca determining
rolenames from At-Spi and atk.
Of course this is absolute not matter, because not need own rolename
translations with Orca side and not need redundant codes, atk already
have translatable rolename strings.
If Atk developers add new rolenames, enough translate one place the new
rolename string, and Orca will be known the new rolename.
Unfortunately with Ubuntu awailable qt-at-spi package the rolenames are
passed Orca with english strings (check boxes, push buttons, edit boxes,
etc), so the screen reader output is a mixed partialy translated output
with non english languages.
A typical example is a check box, Non english language visual impaired
user hear english role type (check box), and the label and state hear
he's own language, I verified this with Skype.
In Unity 2d the situation is similar. Non english language visual
impaired user hear own language a rolename label, and hear the role type
In Launchpad.net the translation strings are not awailable for qt-at-spi
package yet, I don't no upstream project already supporting the
localization or not:
Have a chance to this problem are possible resolving before final Ubuntu
12.04 release, and translators have enough time making the translations
for qt-at-spi package to both two environment visual impaired users hear
equals rolename related informations, or this task will be happening
next development release?
If this task not fit the remaining Ubuntu 12.04 development cicle,
future possible resolving this problem with an update with a maintenance
release (12.04.1, 12.04.2, etc)?
