I'm the developer working on the accessibility support for Unity-3D.
Some comments below.

Odd, you should have access to the launcher. Launcher has a11y support
since Natty. Anyway, we had one bug last week:


That broke all the accessibility on Unity. As it was solved last week,
probably it is not still on the oneiric packages.

About the rest of the views, I have some Unity-3D a11y branches on my
personal page:


They provide a11y support for the Dash and the Quicklist. And I'm also
working right now to provide a11y support for the alt+tab app switcher.

Unfortunately, I was not fast enough developing those branches, and if
you take a look to the Oneiric Release Schedule:


we are already on feature freeze. And those branches adds a lot of files
and changes, so it would be really complex to be included on the final
Ubuntu Oneiric release.

My plan was provide a personal PPA (a Unity 3D version with those
branches included) so the people could test them and provide feeback.

Any other suggestion are welcome.

Best regards
