Description Petr Dvorak 2008-07-14 14:38:44 UTC
Product Version: NetBeans IDE Dev (Build 200807101204)
Java: 1.6.0_10-rc; Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM 11.0-b13
System: Linux version 2.6.24-19-generic running on i386; UTF-8; en_US (nb)

Dialog "Select a file to save into" (File > Print To Html > click Browse button > "Select a file to save into") does not
have an accessible description. A11Y test result says:

No Accessible description :
   Class: javax.swing.JButton {  OK |  } 
   Class: javax.swing.JDialog {  Select a file to save into |  }
   Class: javax.swing.plaf.metal.MetalFileChooserUI$3 {  File Name: |  } 
   Class: sun.swing.FilePane$3 {  |  }

Print category is for Print/Print Preview actions, reassign to the editor...
Comment 2 Vitezslav Stejskal 2008-07-15 16:19:30 UTC
I added the accessible name and description for the dialog itself, but its contents is the JDK's filechooser panel,
which I can't modify.
