Accerciser description
Accerciser is an interactive Python accessibility explorer for the GNOME desktop. It uses AT-SPI to inspect and control widgets, allowing you to check if an application is providing correct information to assistive technologies and automated test frameworks. Accerciser has a simple plugin framework which you can use to create custom views of accessibility information.

In essence, this project is a next generation at-poke tool.

Here are some key features of \\\"Accerciser\\\":

ORBit, not cspi, based

. Like the modern LSR and Orca screen readers, Accerciser uses pyORBit to talk AT-SPI with other applications. The legacy cspi module is avoided.

Plugin architecture

. Create a Python module, drop it in a folder, and have it load as a plugin pane with full access to AT-SPI and the selected element in the accessibility tree view.

Interface browser and event monitor plugins

. All the features you\\\'ve come to expect from a poke tool, and then some.

IPython console plugin

. A full, interactive Python shell with access to the accessible object selected in the tree view; all AT-SPI interfaces, methods and attributes; and any other Python modules. Supports autocompletion and a million other niceties thanks to IPython.

API browser plugin

. Shows the interfaces, methods, and attributes available on the selected accessible object.

Global hotkeys

. Move the tree view quickly to the last focused accessible or the one under the mouse pointer. Insert a marker into the event monitor log for easy identification at a later time.

Customizable UI layout

. Move plugin tabs to different panels or even separate windows to view them concurrently.


. Accerciser does not disable its own accessibility.

Yelp documentation

. Included in the package.

Python powered. . is a collaborative web space for GNOME users and developers.
