the virtual box application at this time is not fully accessable to
blind impared users and can not be normaly used by them. but in old
versions, it was accessable.
virtualbox contains many accessability problems, but more then critical
problem is inaccessability of machine menu that appearing when host+home
key combination pressed.
Also, the NVDA (http://nvaccess.org) - popular windows screenreader have
I has sucgestion to vbox developers:
the nvda has a special library called nvda controller client.
this library allows any application to interact with nvda by sending
text to speak to this screenreader.
details on https://github.com/nvaccess/nvda
section "key project links", nvda controller client link.

I'm also starting developer and i know that any gui element has focused
If implement this dll library to VirtualBox code and will send to it
name of every machine menu item, possible without any localisations and
status information, nvda users will be able to use this importent gui item.
I think that this will be very easy to implement, but If this will be
implemented, many blind users will be able to use this importent gui item.
I is new on this forum. If I wrote to inapropriat place, please refer me
