I'm cross-posting this thread from python-list.

Might this package help? (I have no experience with this project)

Tka11y 0.1.1 - accessibility-aware Tkinter

Another idea: Use Tkinter's <Enter> events to speak TTS descriptions of
the current control and/or its contents?

I would love to hear from anyone using either of these techniques ... or 
other techniques or screen reader products ... to make their Tkinter
applications accessible to low vision/blind users.
