[macvoiceover] Re: New Olearia test GUI

That's because the first version had no underlying code to it. It did not follow proper user interface practices in that the buttons were all active even before a book had been loaded. Now the buttons are not active until a book has been loaded. Then they become active, undimmed.

No, in fact if you open a book now it will be there.

Subject: [macvoiceover] New Olearia test GUI


Those of you testing or would like to test the GUI of the Macintosh
DAILSY Playback software Olearia. there is a new version to try at the
project's home page

http://www.cucat.org/projects/olearia/index.php

Here is what's new.

1. Grouped the playback, navigation and information buttons into
groups

2. Early and still buggy work on being able to collapse and expand the
navigation controls to simplify the interface for small children and
the elderly.

3. Added menus for navigation and bookmarks. These are not active. The
navigation menu will work even if the navigation buttons are
collapsed.

4. This is the first test where the actual Olearia code is present.
The program will start by opening the control window. The File>Open
menu let's you open opf, ncx and ncc.html files but there is no
playback at this point.

Thank you for looking at this.
