As a suggestiom, have you tried to talk to folks who coded the
vbuffers to firefox for NVDA?
I know that there are two diferent operating systems here and such and
such, but if the firefox is coded the same way (I do think it is so
cinse it wouldm be hard to maintain two diferent flavours of code),
then perhaps a good part of the c++ v buffer implemented in NVDA could
be used to process pages in firefox to orca.
Sinse the two readers are written in python, chances are even greater
that some code interchange might be possible.
