DESCRIPTION

ATK (Accessibility Tool Kit) is a set of interfaces which, when implemented by applications and user-interface component libraries, supports the use of applications by persons with disabilities. ATK provides a consistent set of in-process interfaces which conforming components implement, either directly or via the use of add-on libraries. These interfaces are in turn exported out-of-process for use by assistive technologies (see at-spi(3)).

Using ATK, applications can explicitly provide descriptive information about their components. By using ATK-enabled toolkits such as GTK+, applications obtain built-in accessibility support.

The ATK API is a queryable, interfaced API for obtaining textual, attribute-based, and coordinate information from user interface components, and also provides a means of activating and interacting with those components without the direct use of the keyboard or system pointing device.

To access the API documentation, you must install the developer version of the package.
