I don't believe anyone has voiced plans for adding accessibility features
to the current implementation of the setup package chooser.  There are a
couple of people (including me) working (slowly) on re-implementing the
chooser completely using standard Windows controls, which will support
keyboard interaction, screen readers, etc, automatically.
