Re: ui automation
Each operating system has an accessibility framework or API where assistive technology and application use this framework to provide a person information on the label, state, value and role of components within the program. For example, when you’re in an application and you hear okay button. The application could be using the accessibility framework to give you the information via your preferred screen reader such as NVDA.toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
The original version of this technology was introduced into thousand approximately, called MSAA All browsers use the UIA framework. This framework provides a lot of properties which screen readers do not utilise
Note, on the Mac platform if an application doesn’t use their version of the accessibility framework then you cannot use the application. This applies on their mobile platform as well. Windows luckily you can get around this issue with such programs like NVDa and jaws Not all applications on the window platform uses this technology either. Some applications that do use don’t necessarily use it correctly either.
My experience is the part
