I sent John Ralls a message,
he says that we have to bundle an on screen reader called Orca to handle the GTK side of things.
I suppose this is how it is done in linux. so If that can be working first then we can try to make an XboardOrca.app or something.
Thing is, I bet it would still need VoiceOver to read the OSX menubar.

I see, thank-you! I guess we will have to use a combination of the two. VoiceOver for the menubar, and Orca for everything else.

On a couple of occasions Xboard has been requested to have voice over support. Is there any implementation of this for GTK apps? From what I have seen from other ones, and the online documentation, it doesn’t look like it. As of now the menubar reads, but there is no support with the various in-window items.
No. Gnome has its own screen-reader program called IIRC Orca. You’d have to set that up in your application bundle somehow. I’ve no experience with a11y and don’t even know where to start.
