I agree with Gunnar that this indeed needs to be solved. But I would 
prefer a clean solution in the API itself, similar the the way key 
presses get broadcasted in AT-SPI.

I will send a mail to the GNOME list concerning this to have it added to 
AT-SPI. QAccessibleInterface will also need this.

Hmm, such a feature might be better placed in an accessibility widget 
style or in kdelibs than in external assistive technologies.

I am not sure which users you have in mind for this particular feature, 
but anyway, why is this zoom function more important than making 
Klaviatura work with statically linked Qt applications and (if a bridge 
is used) even apps that use ATK?

I don't want tie assistive technologies for KDE to Gtk, I hope we can do 
all with two native APIs and clean bridges.
