    If Full Tilt Poker complies with Apple's accessibility API, you can use
    accessibility functions. All apps using standard Carbon or Cocoa UI code do
    comply with accessibility automatically, but there's no guarantee that a
    game does use standard UI code. The documentation for how to use the
    accessibility API in a so-called "assistive" application was removed from
    Leopard, but the API is public and supported. Look at the "AX" headers in
    the HIServices subframework of the ApplicationServices framework.
