Tenon is platform agnostic. You can use it via the web interface [1], or by hooking into the Tenon API [2].

Firebug can be plugged into Firefox on Windows, OSX and Linux [3]. I haven't used it on OSX though, so can't vouch for whether it's usable with VO or not.

Accessibility Inspector is similar to aViewer, but it runs on OSX/iOS. It comes with Xcode which is a free download from the app store [4].
