Re: [opensuse-factory] accessibility possability to have gnome-orca function on live iso
hi there,
I have an update!
someone told me they got orca working on opensuse 13.2 gnome iso,
downloaded that iso and yes i'm hearing orca after the live cd booted
with alt plus super plus s in a vm.
could you look at the iso/installed apps and you may find what the change is.
thanks,
Majid Hussain

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 screen.
would it be possable to have gnome orca function from when the boot
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 started

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

- 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.

Unfortunately there's another issue: The gnome live cd does not have enough
free space for orca, brltty and co. left.

Now, somebody has to pick the ball and do the work..
