The code copying the setting is in casper, it has lightdm support but we should look at adding new code for gdm...

@Brian, no, see my comment on the bug you are pointing out. The other bug was about the feature not working anymore since the switch to GNOME, that bug is about the lack of gdm support

This bug was fixed in the package casper - 1.408

casper (1.408) eoan; urgency=medium

  * ubiquity-hooks/30accessibility:
    - enable accessibility for gdm as well as for lightdm which was still
      the only option being handled (lp: #1825112)
