IAccessible2 SIG Conference Call Minutes 2008/01/29

  1. Regrets
    • Mike Squillace, Andres Gonzalez
  2. Attendees
    • Pete Brunet, Mick Curran
  3. CSUN
    • There are 13 panelists for the IA2 session. Eleven of them will speak, each for about 5 minutes.
  4. NVDA
    • We talked about the out of process nature of NVDA. To bring NVDA up to operational level quickly Python was used. C++ is needed for in process performance so NVDA's virtual buffer support will be written in C++. In the future, NVDA could either be rewritten in C++ or could continue on with Python if IA2 provides support for out of process, e.g. by adding a new event mechanism to provide event context data with the event and a Collection interface. Adding a Collection interface would imply that the Collection interface be implemented in a collection component that ATs talked to out of process and which itself called IA2 application implementations in process. This would be a significant effort but in any event there is no reason why the event and collection mechanisms could not be designed and specified in IDL prior to any implementation.
  5. Missing constants when using a type lib
    • This was added as issue 123
