Because I do not see at all and I Am using screen reader NVDA, it would 
be ideal, if so much of Lazarus GUI would be 100 % accessible. But I 
know, that it is very complex to retain screen readers accessibility, 
friendly look for sighted users and fast IDE responsiveness.
For now, I would like to thank you, that you have allowed visually 
impaired users to use edit field inside source code wiev. Screen readers 
users are even notified about line number on focus. Sure, because it is 
not standard Windows Microsoft Edit control, it is impossible to use 
CTRL+SHIFT+arrow keys to assign some block of text with screen reader, 
but I know, that also commercial Delphi which uses his own controls not 
standard Windows controls from Microsoft have similar issue.
The most difficulty question is to determine, what is more complex. 
Modify Lazarus component sources or customize NVDA screen reader for 
accessibility of non standard controls.
