foobar2000 v2.0beta2 x64 accessibility problem

Hello,
I noticed an accessibility bug in fb2k v2.0b2 x64. Same version x86 works fine.
I am using the NVDA screen reader.
In the preferences, some check boxes do not read whether they are checked or not.
For example, Preferences / display / Context Menu. When I navigate through the list of icons, the context menu says its name and number of items, and does not announce the selection status. Same for Advanced preferences. For example, the Write EXTm3U playlists option is unavailable for screen readers (we can't find out if it's checked or unchecked).
I have described it as best as I can. Hope you understood my report.
Greetings

I updated to beta 3 because I didn't find out about this version right away and inform you that the problem persists.

It's now mid-Janury, and inaccessibility is still a major problem with screen readers.  There are serious unusable boxes and lists for configuration, and this is version 22.  Is there some way to get these issues resolved?  JRiver, for one, refuses to do anything with their software.  FB2K has been, for the most part, good for blind users.

Unfortunately I installed beta 24 and this problem exist.
I've tried two screen readers NVDA and Narrator and I don't get the state of checkbox selection in for example preferences/display/context menu.
This happens on the portable version, I haven't tried the installer yet.
Anyone still confirming the issue?
