Adding gnome-accessibility and accessibility to the lists as they are the ones with the answers in this regard I believe.

Joanie, we are discussing magnification, and I thought you'd likely know the answer about the api orca/gnome mag uses that Gunnar mentioned here.

do you know if the magnification API is going to be kept with / ported to AT-
SPI2? if so, then it would be possible to make use of that API with the kwin
magnification desktop effect (when used as an a11y aid) and when AT-SPI2
becomes available, nothing in kwin's code would need to change. but that
relies on the magnification API remaining stable ... (which i hope it would,
for the sake of other magnifiers out there)
