[Athen] Gmail accessibility

GMail, with the basic HTML interface, works fine with Window-Eyes
6.1, so I presume that Google has built it so that it's not designed
to work with only one screen reader.
I don't believe that it has all of the same features and
functionality as the "normal" interface, however.
Setting up a GMail account with IMAP or POP access may be worth considering.
I wouldn't call the basic HTML interface perfect, but it's certainly usable.
