The simplest thing is probably to use the AtkText interface to read
what's being displayed.  The file src/reflect.c in the source tree is an
example of how to use the accessibility support to obtain and update a
copy of what's being displayed in the terminal and display it in a

Because the AT implementation models what is displayed to the user, and
not what's at the "bottom" of the history, you should probably disable
scrollback by calling vte_terminal_set_scrollback_lines() with a size of
0 (the size which actually gets used is the higher of the requested
value and the number of visible rows, so passing in 0 effectively
disables scrolling).
