 are there any examples or samples of the code I can use to accomplish
my goals?

Some time ago I have been gathering the tests I had on my machine on
this (informal) repository:

So, a example of how to list the running applications registered to
at-spi2 using pyatspi2:

There aren't any specific example for your second request. You could
take a look to the other examples on that repository, an pyatspi2, to
see if you can infer that. If you need more ellaborated code, you could
take a look to accerciser and orca code.

[1]  The reason for the 2nd need is obvious only if you've lived with
speech recognition for a while.  if you are not focused on a text
box/region, you only want command grammars active otherwise
inadvertent plaintext dictation can trigger all sorts of single
character commands. I cannot tell you the number of email messages I
have lost as a result of inadvertent plaintext dictation when in
