Err, I didn't reach such question, so can't work on the bug you're
facing.  AIUI, you chose the low level for debconf questions, but then
answered the default answers, except probably partitioning, and in
tasksel, you selected the graphical desktop and standard system, i.e. 1
and 10, right?

Note that gdm3 first permits to choose a login instead of typing it. To
type a login, you need to first press the end key, then enter, and then
type your login, enter, password, enter.

There is one, it's just quite complex:

sudo -u Debian-gdm gconftool --type bool --set /desktop/gnome/applications/at/screen_reader_enabled true

I'm checking with upstream about adding a shortcut to trigger the gnome
accessibility panel.
