Bug Description

Other Gtk apps signal the OSK to appear when using touch as the primary navigation method. e.g. Touch in to gedit, and the osk pops up, touch in to eog and it goes away.

Chromium doesn't do this (and nor does Firefox). This will be required for good 2-in-1 support.

Does that affect the omnibox (address bar), text fields in web content, or both?
I unfortunately don't have touch hardware to test that on.

It's both.

Interestingly, double-pressing on text in the omnibox or a text input field does open a "Cut, Copy, Paste" dialogue.

Olivier - could you take a look at this one again when you're back from hols?

From http://www.chromium.org/developers/accessibility/linux-accessibility:

 « Currently, accessibility of Chromium on desktop Linux is not really supported. However, there is a medium-term plan to solve this - please contact <email address hidden> if you'd like more information. Our goal is for all users to have an excellent experience, and we have a plan that will make everything work great while minimizing the extra effort required by Chromium developers. »

Some data points:

 Version 58.0.3029.110 on trusty, the a11y tree shows up in accerciser, but if I enable the OSK in the accessibility settings, the next launch only the root node shows up for chromium (and focusing text fields in chromium doesn't bring up the OSK).

 Version 58.0.3029.110 on xenial, only the root node shows up in accerciser, regardless of whether the OSK is enabled.

 Version 59.0.3071.109 on trusty, only the root node shows up in accerciser, regardless of whether the OSK is enabled.
