Summary0006859: add orca screenreader with deps to live iso
DescriptionIn earlier versions we had gnome and orca screenreader installed, so that live iso was accessible for blind users.
now I downloaded latest iso and saw that there is no orca installed.

I don't know what desktop environment is used by you now.
may be orca is part of gnome ecosystem in your package, so it was removed when you changed de of your iso.
please install gnome-orca package with deps to your iso.
also please check that:
speech-dispatcher package is installed
pulseaudio is set up to work in your root only environment
espeak (or espeak-ng if exists) is installed, but should be installed automaticly with orca

Is it really sufficient to just install orca in XFCE and be done with it?

What about integration in lightdm?

We do provide the live-build configuration so that you can easily build your own ISO eithelr with GNOME or with XFCE and supplementary packages: have a look at

If the autologin is configured, lightdm configuration isn't so needed.

Thanks for the suggestion, this is something we can look into for 2021.4
