It seems so indeed.

Yes, but is it as powerful as brltty?

Hmm, I guess you meant 2 years. There has been some work in the past for
X access (ultrasonix), but that approach wouldn't work today. The
current at-spi approach (since 2 years) is a better long-term solution.
I guess JAWS isn't able to use AT-SPI however.
