Hi All,
I have posted the following query on webkit-dev mailing list, but today itself I came across this webkit-help list and thought of posting the same question here as well. Since I haven't received a response on that list, so I am posting here.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks & Regards

WebKit/Gtk+ and Accessibility Query
I am working on developing a test automation solution for an application which uses WebKit/Gtk+ library on Linux. While browsing through the sources of WebKit and related mailing lists, I got to know that WebKit does support Accessibililty through the usage of Atk/at-spi libraries.

There are couple of tools like "Accerciser" and at-poke for finding the object information of Gtk applications (which are accessibility enabled). When I execute my webkit based application and try to see the object hierarchy in one of these tools (accerciser), I find ONLY txt<Objects>.

The application is a small Gtk window with 7-8 Links on it which lead to different HTML pages. The complete rendering of html pages is done using WebKit.

My query is: Since webkit is accessibility enabled, why I am not able to see the Links as LINK Objects on which I can perform "click" operations.
All I see is "txtLink1", "txtLink2" without ANY operation possible on those. I am very sure that these links are displayed using the WEBKIT_WEB_VIEW macro and then calling webkit_web_view_open with "uri" of the html page.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks & Regards
