It is unfortunately more complicated. Most graphical toolkits now
provide hooks that you can use to scrape the screen with. Anaconda
does not have any way to get information about what is going on from
brltty's point of view. I have not looked at the Anaconda code in
quite some time. I imagine it could be patched to provide them, but I
do remember thinking that it did not look very straightforward, even
though there is an API provided by brltty for this sort of thing.
There is a fedora usability group, where it has been discussed from
time to time, especially whenever the Anaconda folks are proposing to
look at making changes. We have asked several times for brltty
support to be included, but without success so far. It is always
going to be a problem when people are busy and donating their free
time, and most of the developers are not able to test it themselves.
With the new UI rewrite, we did update the Anaconda UI code to use GTK3
and python GObject introspection, do you know if those changes might
make it easier to support brltty?
