To be honest, I haven't tried running the at-spi 2 service on any embedded 
hardware. I don't see it as a problem conceptually though, it's something to 
debug if it doesn't work. Note that it's not a Qt project and we only 
implement the required dbus interface.

Another alternative could be to use Froglogic's Squish or use the DBus API 
directly. I'll also answer you in private about services from The Qt Company.
