I've been trying to get a grip on bug fdo#70588 "Accessible labels in
alerts claim to be ROLE_PASSWORD_TEXT instead of ROLE_LABEL". In short
this bug makes text inside message dialogs unreadable to screen readers
(on all platforms).
I've followed the code around a bit and it seems to be an issue with
different WinBits that has the same value, more exactly WB_WORDBREAK and
WB_PASSWORD has the same value and indirectly set the AccessibleRole to
In newer message dialogs here is were the WB_WORDBREAK gets added:
Here is were the AccessibleRole gets set to PASSWORD_TEXT (due to the
fact that WB_WORDBREAK is set)
I should probably mention that WB_READONLY and WB_NOLABEL has the same
value, but that has only positive effects in the above mentioned case
because labels in messageboxes should of course be read only.
**Does it make sense to change the values of WinBits or how does one
deal with a problem like this?*
For quick reference to WinBits:
