Some work was done in the LCL-Cocoa and LCL-Win32 to support screen
readers. Since LCL-Win32 uses native controls, it should be acessible
to screen readers out of the box, but it would be great if you could
test how the LCL apps behave in practice. I tested a long time ago.

About UI designing, I think it is best if you bypass the Form designer
completely and write the UI in code instead. Here is an example of how
to write LCL GUIs in code only, without using the Form Designer:


Also read this page about acessibility in general and specifically
about adding accessibility to custom control (non-native ones) in the
LCL: http://wiki.lazarus.freepascal.org/LCL_Accessibility
