hi there,
i'm very sorry if this is not the list to ask this,
I am blind and require a screen reader to navigate around the
would it be possable to have gnome orca function from when the
screen is ran?

It is unfortunately not possible right now:

Orca is only started if a gsetting key is set on the system
(org.gnome.desktop.a11y.applications to the value
screen-reader-enabled )

Some development would be needed to:
- when enabling screen reading in boot menu, add a command line to
kernel, to inform the system screen reader capability should be

I just checked - it actually adds "braille=1" to the cmdline.

Thanks for testing.. In a sense, it is a bit misleading, but it means
some of the tooling is there.

- once the system is started, automatically set the gsetting key I
mentioned earlier, system-wide (so it would apply to gdm and logged
user), so orca would be started automatically.

That sounds like something which shouldn't be specific to the live
cd, but
rather get included in gnome startup scripts.
