Description Joanmarie Diggs 2011-01-25 15:58:12 PST
Steps to reproduce:

1. Navigate to google.com
2. Begin typing a search

At this point a list of matches/suggestions and two additional push buttons appear. But I am not seeing any events to suggest they got added (object:children-changed:add) or, alternatively, suddenly appeared (object:state-changed:{showing, visible}).

3. Arrow up and down amongst the list of suggestions.

At this point, we are getting a caret-moved event for the entry because the text is changing. But I am not seeing any events for:

* The removal of the current text (object:text-changed:delete)
* The insertion of the new text (object:text-changed:insert)
* The selection change in the list.

The lack of text-changed events totally confuses Orca because it's trying to respond to the caret-moved events w.r.t. the text which is no longer present.

In addition to the above, I cannot figure out how to use the keyboard to give focus to the buttons at the bottom of this list.

Note to Mario: I'm sure this is going to need to be split up into a bunch of parts/individual bugs. But I'll let you decide on what those parts/bugs are. :-)
