Is QT in Ubuntu 18X by default?
I have never installed that in Ubuntu, but Chirp always worked until I 
couldn't get it from the repository.

I know nothing about accessibility.
Others have reported that other softwares in flatpak format are accessible 
so I suggest you build it from source. You will still need QT and
