|0007999||Kali Linux||[All Projects] General Bug||public||2022-10-10 23:28||2023-01-31 08:19|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version|
|Summary||0007999: Anytime installation using the speech selection, no matter what options chosen always end at a minimum base install text console|
|Description||On the Kali forum several users have asked how to get Orca working on their Kali install, and whilst that is possible, it doesn't actually 'speak' the username field on the log in screen even when Orca is workinbg after the log in has completed.|
Without the screen reader features working on that screen, they then cannot log in to their account, making the now working install, not accessable from a reboot.
|Steps To Reproduce||From the Kali installer screen, choose the speech accesability option for install, the install process speech works, but no matter which options are chosen at the software selection screen, after it has installed and wants to reboot, the user is left at a basic install prompt without the ability to log in to any kind of desktop.|
|Additional Information||The only way that works properly is to install Kali without speech option and only after its booted to to a desktop, to then install and configure any missing software. As a sighted user this is clearly no problem for me, but is not apropriate for users who need the screen reader functions.|
I have tried several versions of Kali including some earlier releases, and all seem to show the same behaviour.
||Hey, just to let you know that we're working on that, there are different things broken with speech synthesis install at the moment, as you noticed. Unfortunately it won't be fixed in time for the upcoming 2022.4 release, but I hope we'll have a functional weekly image shortly afterward. I'll ping again on this channel. Thanks for your patience!|
Hello, the issue should be fixed in the weekly image (2023-W05). I just tested the installer image and it worked, there was speech synthesis during installation, and also in the XFCE greeter (aka. lightdm), and also after logging in XFCE. Please give it a try: https://www.kali.org/get-kali/#kali-installer-images
Feel free to re-open this issue if needed, if ever there's more things to fix.
Thanks for your patience!
