What is AT-SPI2

AT-SPI2 is a D-Bus based accessibility framework. It defines a D-Bus

information. The project includes a library for bridging the D-Bus
protocol to the ATK API, allowing Gtk based applications to be made
accessible. It also contains a client (AT) side library in C and a wrapper
for Python.
