Did you select GNOME or XFCE as your desktop during installation?

What was the last version of Kali that was working for you?

Somehow I fear that you are just experiencing sub-par accessibility due to the switch to XFCE compared to GNOME.

Thanks for the report. Indeed we forgot to install orca in Kali. I just added it to the various desktops that Kali provides: This change will make it in the next version of the Kali iso.
