This isn't the same, I know, but have you tried launching "aptitude"
instead? I have no idea whether that is an improvement from an
accessibility viewpoint, but I thought it might be worth trying.

Personally, I rarely use synaptic, having learnt to use apt-get years ago
while running Debian. If you are willing to read a bit, you might try the
same. You can read about apt and aptitude here:

( roughly in order of thoroughness and detail)

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptitudeSurvivalGuide

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AptGetHowto

http://www.debian.org/doc/manuals/apt-howto/index.en.html

There is also an apt-howto package

sudo apt-get install apt-howto-en && apt-howto

It opens the Debian Howto in your browser ( probably Firefox in Ubuntu -
x-www-browser in Debianese :-)
