public interface Accessible : Object

`GtkAccessible` is an interface for describing UI elements for Assistive Technologies.

Every accessible implementation has:

  • a “role”, represented by a value of the [enum@Gtk.AccessibleRole] enumeration
  • an “attribute”, represented by a set of [enum@Gtk.AccessibleState], [enum@Gtk.AccessibleProperty] and [enum@Gtk.AccessibleRelation] values

The role cannot be changed after instantiating a `GtkAccessible` implementation.

The attributes are updated every time a UI element's state changes in a way that should be reflected by assistive technologies. For instance, if a `GtkWidget` visibility changes, the gtk_accessible_state_hidden state will also change to reflect the [ property@Gtk.Widget:visible] property.

Every accessible implementation is part of a tree of accessible objects. Normally, this tree corresponds to the widget tree, but can be customized by reimplementing the [vfunc@Gtk.Accessible.get_accessible_parent], [vfunc@Gtk.Accessible.get_first_accessible_child] and [ vfunc@Gtk.Accessible.get_next_accessible_sibling] virtual functions. Note that you can not create a top-level accessible object as of now, which means that you must always have a parent accessible object. Also note that when an accessible object does not correspond to a widget, and it has children, whose implementation you don't control, it is necessary to ensure the correct shape of the a11y tree by calling [ method@Gtk.Accessible.set_accessible_parent] and updating the sibling by [method@Gtk.Accessible.update_next_accessible_sibling].
