I am pleased to announce the release of Accessibility Probe (AccProbe)
v0.4.3. AccProbe is an Eclipse RCP-based stand-alone Java aplication that
combines inspection, event-monitoring, and hierarchical viewing of
accessible objects and their properties. It is currently only available for
Windows platform but does support both MSAA- and IAccessible2-enabled
aplications. It is, so far as I know, the only game in town for
IAccessible2 inspection
and event-monitoring, which also means that it can be used to verify
ARIA-enabled web applications in Firefox 2.x and above.

Enhancements in the latest release include:

1.    Global tracking synchronized with Explorer View, similar to
application-by-application tracking
2.    ExpandExplorer View button
3.    Event monitor changes:
- new display column
- Misc Data for Caret event properties
- new option Monitor all processes
4.    Suspend all actions/Resume all actions button in the Accprobe toolbar
5.    Null property value display option
