Accerciser 3.3.1pre Just 15 minutes a day for better accessibility! Description =========== Accerciser is an interactive Python accessibility explorer for the GNOME desktop. It uses AT-SPI2 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, Accerciser is a next generation at-poke tool. Features ======== * Based in at-spi2 Accerciser uses the new dbus-based accessiblity framework. * Plugin architecture Create a Python module, drop it in a folder, and have it load as a plugin pane with full access to AT-SPI2 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-SPI2 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. * Accessibility! Accerciser does not disable its own accessibility. * Yelp documentation Included in the package. * Python powered Brits, not serpents. Requirements ============ As Accerciser uses pygobject, you'll need to have the following libraries: gobject-introspection python-gobject >= 2.90.3 gtk+3 >= 3.1.13 On a Red Hat based distro: python >= 2.4 pyatspi >= 1.9.0 at-spi2-core >= 2.1.5 glib2 >= 2.10 GConf2-devel pygobject On a Debian based distro: python >= 2.4 python-pyatspi >= 1.9.0 at-spi2 >= 2.1.5 libgconf2-dev python-gobject To use the Python console plugin, you must hve IPython installed. Make sure accessibility is enabled for your GNOME desktop: gsettings get org.gnome.desktop.interface toolkit-accessibility Installing ========== autogen.sh make sudo make install Running ======= Type 'accerciser' at the prompt or choose the Accerciser item from the Programming menu in GNOME.
