Yes I found that the WX html widget is not accessible and the tab control neither.
There are other controls which are not accessible, but I guess not because of WX, but because those Win32 controls are not accessible.
I am talking about the tool bar controls and the scroll bar controls, and maybe there are others...

Can you give a specific example of a problem with Wx accessibility? On Windows, Wx wraps standard Windows controls, so MSAA support comes automatically. Jamal On Mon, 22 Oct 2007, Ken Perry wrote:
