LightDM's Unity greeter receives accessibility support

Ubuntu 11.10 final will be available in less than one month and, it is this period of time, when everything must be fixed, completed and production machines-ready.

LightDM's Unity greeter has just received "missing pieces", transforming LightDM into an enjoyable full-fledged login experience:

  • new accessibility menu packed with

    "Onscreen keyboard" (onBoard virtual keyboard)

    "High Contrast" (applies both to the indicators' menu and LightDM's "Dash")

    "Screen Reader"

  • Attention icon when one types capital letters/numbers
