This API provides an abstraction layer to allow accessibility applications a way to manipulate the UI of other applications, be they Carbon or Cocoa. The API is provided for use by both Carbon and Cocoa applications, although this sample demonstrates their use from a Cocoa application. In this sample, the Accessibility API is used to get information about whatever AXUIElements (widgets) are under the mouse at any given time. Information can be obtained from the AXUIElement, and actions that it has can be performed.
