2 Accessibility

2.1 High Contrast Mode Issues

CJ has suggested that "High Contrast Mode" should become a sub project in Accessibility to collect the proposals and other things.

It has turned out that there are still some items that do not fit the requirements of the High Contrast Mode: Rulers and a few buttons based on bitmaps. CJ sets up a proposal for a new ruler design. The bitmaps have to be collected by the developers of the specific applications (see chapter 1 – Action Items).

2.2 Accessibility of Toolbar Configuration Dialog

The redesign of the Toolbar Configuration Dialog will be done by another team and is therefore not a task of the VUI team.

2.3 Keyboard Shortcut Layouts

The Product Management (CJ) has informed us that the ability to manage different keyboard shortcut layouts is too extensive and will not be implemented for the next version.
