Yes, it's an X11 window.

As I've said many times already, CHIRP uses GTK to achieve a
cross-platform user interface. This is non-native on MacOS (and Windows)
and thus "looks" like a picture instead of a set of widgets to 
unenlightened screen reader software. Asking it to read it to you is 
roughly equivalent to asking it to read a picture of a kitten.
