I don't believe it is. The short version is, the at-spi bus is not 
available in the flatpak sandbox. I know there was an issue raised back 
in 2016, to try and get this resolved. The web url for this github issue 
is, https://github.com/flatpak/flatpak/issues/79. I really hope we can 
get something resolved with this technology, because I know more and 
more programs are using it, besides Chirp. On to work I go, but 73     
and have a great day.
