The biggest problem there is that it doesn't actually read the content of Qt
widgets. So while it may help people with partial eyesight like the
original poster in this thread, it won't really work for completely blind
users. Qt 4 actually has an accessibility framework, but I'm not aware of
any screen readers using it yet. Everything's waiting for AT-SPI-D-Bus, the
new cross-desktop accessibility framework (which will allow using Orca to
screenread Qt 4 apps as well, and hopefully we'll also get a KDE
screenreader) which is being worked on.
