I saw it, and it seems promising, but: first, there is probably, or I
heard it wrong? no public api for making accessibility related stuff...
Also, I believe there is no linux accessibility bridge as opposed to
windows and mac. And I do not know if I am wrong, or when this is
going to be implemented.
