I was working with Robert on accessibility for the greeter that Ubuntu will be using in Oneiric. He has added the enabling and launching of accessibility services, as well as improved accessibility of he greeter itself.

When lightdm is used, accessibility is the domain of the greeter, so it is certainly possible that greeters for lightdm do not support any accessibility at all.
