Actionbands, Accessibility and the Delphi IDE

You may or may not know that the Delphi IDE uses the ActionBands VCL components for its main menu and as a result does not support Accessibility (not good, I know). I’m happy to report that with our next release of Delphi this problem has been resolved. We’ve added MSAA support to the ActionBand components and therefore the IDE’s menus will support accessibility. Unfortunately, we’re unable to retrofit the technology to work with previous releases although it was considered.
