Report from Janina, Open A11y chair
The conversations with MS attorneys continues regarding interop between the LF and the AIA. Progress has been made but at least one more meeting is necessary and will be held on Wednesday, Nov 12.
The IA2 community would like to see work done on a new unified (not merged) API that includes the functionality of MSAA/IA2, UIA, ATK/AT-SPI, and Apple's UA (Universal Access, provided by their NSAccessibility API). Refer to the recent mail thread starting with this post.
The AIA, LF legal discussions probably need to complete first.
Mick and Jamie felt Qt should enable their Win support. Janina to follow up with her recent contact at Nokia and Mick and/or Jamie to see if they can submit a request for this to be added. A product called VirtualBox uses Qt.
Pete got some late input from Sun and will report on that next week.
