#1445 closed Bug / Defect (wontfix)

Windows GUI should support keyboard navigation, show tooltips describing icons

Reported by: thw0rted Owned by: OpenVPN Inc.
Priority: minor Milestone:
Component: OpenVPN Connect Version: OpenVPN Connect for Windows
Severity: Not set (select this one, unless your'e a OpenVPN developer) Keywords: accessibility


The Windows GUI has poor accessibility.

It should be possible to navigate the GUI using standard keyboard commands -- Tab to change control focus, enter to select, etc.

It also uses icon-only buttons for various functions without providing any way of determining what clicking the icon will do. "Scroll with paired angle brackets" apparently means "show log file", "Envelope" icon apparently means "save to disk"? Icons should show a tooltip on hover that describes their function, and these descriptions should be made available to screen readers when the icon receives focus (via Tab, as above).
