Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface
Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface (AT-SPI) is a toolkit-neutral way of providing accessibility facilities in applications. It was developed by the GNOME project. AT-SPI toolkits provide a logical representation of the content of the application. Helpful assistants like screen readers or magnifiers can then allow disabled persons to browse and interact with the applications.
AT-SPI is the glue between applications and assistive technology programs. The infrastructure is currently being reworked as AT-SPI2 to use DBus, which makes it more useful for other platforms such as KDE/Qt and Mobile.
