Reorganizing Accessibility Tree

  • I'm trying to reorganize how QT presents widgets to VoiceOver on Mac. What's the best way to reorganize how items appear in accessibility tree?

    1. Relocate an item from current parent to another parent
    2. Group items into a parent just for accessibility purpose without affecting GUI
      I understand that I can change parent and children relationship through QAccessibleInterface.
      However, is there a way to change QAccessibleInterface for QT built-in widgets without modifying QT source and recompiling?

    That's a pretty interesting question but I think you might be out of luck here. I may be wrong (I hope so) but I do not think that we have many members using the Qt Accessibilty features.

    I'd recommend posting this on the interest mailing list. You'll find there Qt developers/maintainers.
