DrRacket does use `racket/gui`, which (as you say) is not Gtk on

We had a user of DrRacket + Jaws many years ago. Unless I misremember,
DrRacket worked ok with Jaws at that time, despite doing no particular
effort on our part to cooperate with Jaws. We've reimplemented
`racket/gui` since then, so maybe something relevant was lost in the
rewrite (or maybe I misremember in the first place).
