Kleopatra: Check that accessibility is also supported for VS-NfD
Testing, HighPublic

Description

Back in 2014 we had a project to ensure that accessibility is supported in our software. Mostly it worked the goal was that NVDA https://www.nvaccess.org/ which is seemingly the most important software for that could read the pinentry fields etc. For that we had to ship a Qt plugin and set some "Buddy" rules. The Buddy rules are mostly that a line edit is directly associated with a label.

We now have to check that:

  1. We still ship the plugins and it works
  2. That our "This is VS-NfD compliant is correctly associated with the button

At least for the second point I do not think that we have done this.

Ingo, I have tested this on Windows with NV Access and was able to symmetrically encrypt and decrypt a file with closed eyes. I went through the windows explorer context menu to select sign & encrypt on selected files.
Can you also do some more tests on Linux ( I do not know how to properly enable a screenreader there ) and if you find anything ugly fix it.

The main goal is symmetric encryption and decryption but I think our personal goal should be that Kleo has good accessibility overall.
