I AM afraid, that to make Lazarus editor accessible, it would be 
necessary to use UIautomation component as often as possible especially 
while using various list items, The most important would be to make 
accessible form designer. Very accessible IDE for visually impaired is 
Eclipse, but making plugins for this environment which would use Lazarus 
external components such as Lamw is also run on the long way and it is 
not easy.
For example, Akelpad editor is fully accessible. Editbox can be used 
perfectly with screen reader.
But I know, that standard Microsoft WIndows objects can not allow 
developers to make some complex GUI. And it is The cause of 
accessibility issues in general.

Lazarus is perfect tool, load very fast, is stable. This is The reason, 
why I AM so sad, that the most important part of its GUI are not 
accessible. Sure I know, that even commercial IDES have similar issues.
May be, that really, some student of informatic sciences would had to 
get this task from his professor to redesign lazarus or to make The 
series of Eclipse plugins.
Thank you very much for yours help and time.
