Focus Tracking in KWin / KMagnifier

by Amandeep Singh for KDE

Currently the KWin zoom plugin and KMagnifier implement focus tracking using Kaccessible which only works for Qt/KDE applications. In this project I will change the existing code in the KWin zoom-plugin and KMagnifier to use DBus to connect with AT-SPI2 and fetch needed information about focused widget. Also I will identify and fix cases where common applications are not sending the focus events and correct accessibility problems in Qt's widgets as they emerge, for example Qt's tree-views.
