Remove the Accessibility menu in Gnome 3

By default gnome-shell has an accessibility menu visible in the shell. I get that this is sensible by default. But I don’t need it and it bothers me that I can’t remove it.

User fpmurphy over at fedoraforum has posted a shell extension that removes the offending icon.

I have created a tarball of the extension. Download it here and extract it to “~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions”

$ cd ~/.local/share/gnome-shell/extensions
$ unzip gnome-shell-extensions-noa11y.zip

Then restart the shell. Hit “Alt+f2”, and type “r”.

  1. Thank you. Not only is that menu of no use to me, it is also annoying. I tried to make an extension for it myself, but couldn’t find what setting to use.
