Content information of accessibility objects establishes the connection to the objects that are visible on the screen. This information gives a detailed description of what is visible on the screen, the size of the object, and its location on the screen. Access to the content information is provided by several interfaces of the UNO accessibility API, which are described in the following sections.
The accessibility API allows you to divide the implementation of an accessible object into an accessibility related and an accessibility unrelated part. This is done with the com.sun.star.accessibility.XAccessible interface. The getAccessibleContext() method returns an object that implements the other interfaces related to accessibility. This object may be the same as the object that is made accessible, but it can be a different object as well. Once you have the accessibility object, you can use the usual UNO type cast mechanisms to change from one interface to another.
