If you just use the MFC Application Wizard and say I don't want to use a ribbon, I will get a CMFCMenuBar and CMFCToolBar automatically generated for me.  When running my wizard application with VS 2010 and Microsoft Narrator, when I select a top level menu it tells me that I have Zero Buttons.  I have checked active accessibility in the wizard which seems to add a bunch of EnableActiveAccessiblity methods in the code, but that doesn't seem to make any difference.

How do get CMFCMenuBar to work correctly with accessibility?

One of my other reasons for this is it seems a lot of testing tools use the accessiblity API, and since CMFCMenuBar does not seem to be recognized, the tools don't work.
