      Description

      hello,

      i found an issue on linux related to treeview widgets and accessibility.

      the orca screenreader is not able to speak if an tree view element is collapsed, expanded or expandable.

      i thought it is an orca issue but the maintainer of orca was so nice to track it down for me.  It seems to be an issue in QTs ATK AT-SPI implementation.

      It also seems that the state change events are not fired correctly. What makes orca not able to speak an collapse or expand properly.

      here is what i got:

      i currently try to improve the accessibility for linux QT world .

      would be awesome if someone could take a look at.

      cheers chrys
