Re: [opensuse-factory] accessibility possability to have gnome-orca function on live iso
hi,
other distributions are long past the 1 gb limmit,
haveing an accessible opperateing system in my book is worfe lusing a
few of the mbs,
could the qa tool i've herd so much about not fix this?
to correct a missconseption,
sound in the latest iso functions as evidenced by using your media
keys while booted in to the gnome live environment it's just that the
packages orca and espeak are not installed not sure about
speech-dispatcher.
I would love something to be done about this,
Majid Hussain

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,

I assume it would work the same on current gnome isos if the already
mentioned
issues get fixed. Looking at the differences to the much older 13.2 iso
won't
help much, I'm afraid.

Cheers,
Fabian

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..
