Accessibility in KDE 4.10 and beyond

The history

The first tries to join forces with GNOME to build up one common accessibility stack for our beloved desktops pre-date back to 10 years ago.

A year later the solution became more concrete and finally made it as the QAccessible framework into Qt 4.0 in ~2004.

PIM(p) your desktop!
