Please file a bug on this!

The Accessibility Team (who I'm copying on this e-mail in case any of
our members have anything to add) is aware of the issue. If you can
file bugs whenever possible it would be great. Luke and several other
people have been working hard to get accessibility support in Unity,
however, it may not be fully there for Natty. It is relatively easy to
use stock Gnome instead on Natty, however it's a non-ideal solution,
especially for things like an on-screen keyboard since it's rather
important for touch screen devices as well!
