Dear Qt enthusiasts,
I'm part of the development team on the VLC project, specifically on the
upcoming Qt / QML desktop interface.
In order to preserve compatibility (and performances) we're using
composition to render our video frames with a QML UI on top.
Unfortunately it prevents screen-reader events to be dispatched on X11
(Orca). Here's our entry point for UI composition on X11:
Like mentioned in this thread, the D-Bus events are sent just fine on
X11 *but* the active window seems to be wrong, so the OS ignores these
That's a bit advanced, but if someone has a clue on how to fix this we
would greatly appreciate it.
