Correct. Until very recently, that did more or less restrict it to GTK,

That's right; thanks for taking the trouble to look into the fine details of the thing.


I'd say the latter would probably be the easiest and quickest solution.

One problem with accessibility in GUIs under any OS will always be
that accessibility mechanisms remain of little value if developpers do
not make use of them and modify their design to work well with them. One
example is the guitarix project, which uses GTK. Originally it was
fairly accessible and became nearly completely so after I made some
requests to the devs. Unfortunately, since they redesigned the interface
to be entirely drag 'n drop friendly, it has become largely
inaccessible, even though it uses GTK and ATK. That's why I mostly stick
to CLI. :)

Thanks again for taking time to understand the situation. Although I
personally believe a textual interface will always remain the best way
to interact with computers for visually impaired people, many are no
longer used to such interfaces and expect a similar experience under
Linux as what they have grown accustomed to under Windows or Mac.
