It also comes down to whether the applications are accessible in the 
first place. I know for a fact, being one of the devs for UbuntuStudio, 
that many applications are not accessible, even if they do use GTK2, due 
to the many custom widgets that are used. We also have a few critical 
apps that are QT, which doesn't yet have accessibility. At this point, 
I'd say UbuntuStudio and accessibility is not going to happen for a long 
time yet.
