Lists of applications and their accessibility status for screen readers:

Please mention the version tested and add information

Plasma Desktop

To get a more accessible menu switch to the classic menu and assign it a keyboard shortcut.

TODO: explain how to do that...


  • Implemented text interface for KDE 4.9
    • Improvements and somewhat working text interface for 4.9.1


  • Selection updates often wrong
  • Text added/removed signals not sent


  • Improved in KDE 4.8, status unknown


KDE's terminal application.

  • Currently the shell does not implement an accessible text interface.


  • Some unlabeled buttons
  • The main display is not accessible


  • Should give a basic list of git revisions at least


  • Main views will stop working with KDE 4.8 because of the new itemviews
