Nice work. I don't use dictation, but anything that helps in this area is awesome to see.

what I need to know is how to detect events such as focus changes, and
currently active window and application.  later on, it would be useful to
know how to operate on text areas (searching, selecting region etc.).

At-spi is likely your best bet here. You can either use libatspi or talk directly via dbus to the at-spi 
registry daemon. Orca is a good example of a good at-spi client. The good news is that Qt supports at-spi 
rather well these days, so Qt applications will likely be usable for dictation users as well.
