18:35:19@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanJust so odd that I don't encounter this behavior on other chat apps. Gitter, Slack, etc. all work...fine isn't the right word, but I can chat on them without wondering if I drank the special coffee and am now tripping. :)
18:36:07@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanHmm, need to look into that one. Thanks for that.
18:37:34@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerYes I'm still pretty sure this is related. It started to scroll on up arrow press at that time when you have fixed accessibility of message action buttons. I was stupid enough not to talk about it that time.
18:38:57@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanWhich soft Braille keyboard, specifically? No exact matches in the Play store. I see lots of Braille keyboards. How do I find the productive one vs. someone's weekend experiment? :)
18:39:54@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerIt has been pulled off play store. I've built it for my-self about 2 years ago. If you like I can send you the apk, because I am afraid it'll be an exercise to build it with up to date android-sdk, gradle and stuff. It has not been updated from eclipse adt days.
18:40:48@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanSure, send it over. :) If it is open source, I may be willing to contribute a fix to update it if it really is as productive as you say.
18:41:40@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanI have a cheap Android phone, and for some reason Gboard interacts very poorly with TalkBack.
18:42:30@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerHere is the source: https://github.com/danieldalton10/Soft-Braille-Keyboard
18:43:02@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerIt's most awesome braille keyboard I've seen so far.
18:43:34@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerI'll sent you the file via PM.
18:44:42@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanOK. There's a .apk in the repo; is that what you're running?
18:45:19@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerHmmm there is no way to start a chat with existing user on Riotx? Í need to find out.
18:45:29@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanI'll see if I can modernize the build. If it's as great as you say, we need something like it IMO.
18:45:58@nolan:thewordnerd.infonolanFeel free to email it as well. nolan@thewordnerd.info
18:46:32@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerAh if there is an apk, then that's okay. I've built it my-self but I am sure there is no functional difference. I've forgotten there is a build in there.
19:24:53@prater-devin:matrix.orgDevin Prater Hi all, I'm trying to see how Riot works when making an account on iPhone, is all that handled in app, or is the user sent to Safari view service? A student was able to create an account on a PC, and they are able to use Riot for iOS easily, so that's a good sign. :)
19:33:36@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter Vágner

@marcozehe:matrix.org: might be able to give a hint related to IOS app accessibility when he's around. Generaly thinking it should be possible to also create an account from within the app.

19:37:21@prater-devin:matrix.orgDevin PraterIf so, that'll be excellent.
22:41:33@aaron:raim.istAaronYes you can register using Riot iOS. I just tried doing it through VoiceOver, everything seems to work up until the screen about reviewing the terms and conditions. I'm not sure how to accept the terms. When I double tap with the terms and conditions button selected, it just shows them to me. It doesn't toggle the checkbox. I know very little about VoiceOver so maybe there is some way to press it which I am not aware of.

06:33:57@marcozehe:matrix.orgMarco ZeheThe switch to accept the terms and conditions should be a separate control from the button to show them. So either before or after that button, in sequence. I have not created an account on iOS myself, maybe that view does have an accessibility issue if it uses some fancy custom switch to turn acceptance on or off.

17:38:25@x:riot.ovhMichael (t3chguy)My generic roving-tabindex implementation seems to be alive, it is deployed to /develop for the TreeView RoomList
17:39:24@x:riot.ovhMichael (t3chguy) (this means the entire room list will be just two* tab stops, the latest room tile/sublist tile you've focused and the filter input box, makes tabbing around the app faster in that area)
* where there is not multiple actions on a given tile such as the context menus, those will be an additional tab stop only on the active tile

18:08:28@pvagner:pvagner.tkPeter VágnerAwesome! I'll test it later today
