What is AT-SPI2

AT-SPI2 is a D-Bus based accessibility framework. It defines a D-Bus
protocol for providing and accessing application accessibility
information. The project includes a library for bridging the D-Bus
protocol to the ATK API, allowing Gtk based applications to be made
accessible. It also contains a client (AT) side library in C and a wrapper
for Python.

What's changed in AT-SPI 2.15.4

* [core] Add names to every timeout (bgo#710644).

* [core] Remove accessibility.conf from EXTRA_DIST (bgo#742987).

* Add ATSPI_STATE_READONLY (bgo#690004).

* [atk] Don't parse non-existent signal arguments from atk.

* [atk] Support ATK_STATE_HAS_TOOLTIP (bgo#738953).
