Description James Teh 2013-02-13 12:14:34 UTC
The name of cell accessibles in Calc is prefixed by the string "Cell "; e.g. "Cell A1 ". The "Cell " prefix is superfluous, since the fact that it is a cell can be determined by examining the role. This causes extraneous verbosity in screen readers.

1. Open Calc.
2. Retrieve the focused IAccessible object.
3. Call IAccessible::accName on this accessible.
Expected: "A1"
Actual: "Cell A1 "

The prefix was needed for Java Access Bridge, since it doesn't seem to have a cell role. However, MSAA does, so it's definitely not needed for MSAA.

Fixed as of r1536988, but I don't know which commit actually fixed it.
