-There has been a proposal for a D-Bus property to synchronize the setting that says whether assistive technologies are enabled across applications and desktop environments. We already have a "​Enable assistive technologies"​ check button in the accessibility settings dialog. All we have to do is set the ''​org.a11y.status.IsEnabled''​ property on startup and update our setting whenever the this property changes. This will allow applications like Orca to enable ​a11y support in Xfce automatically. That way blind users can just start Orcafollowed by a logout/​loginto activate AT, rather than having to search for the "​Enable assistive technologies"​ check button.+There has been a proposal for a D-Bus property to synchronize the setting that says whether assistive technologies are enabled across applications and desktop environments.
