[plt-scheme] DrScheme and accessibility (Choose a language)

Well, I just ran into a dead end. I asked a co-worker of mine who is
blind to install PLT Scheme. There was no problem there, but I can't
seem to get her past the task of choosing a language. I can do it with
just the keyboard, but using either JAWS or Window Eyes (two screen
readers), she not only is unable to "see" what the languages are
(though the major categories, Professional and Teaching, ARE
"visible"). I can just highlight a language and press <enter>, but that
doesn't seem to work.

Is there any other way of selecting a language in DrScheme?
