I cannot get the Orca screen reader to install on Raspbian Buster running on my Raspberry Pi 4. I followed a guide that instructed me to install a bunch of packages, including espeak, speech-dispatcher, and the gnome-orca screen reader itself. The link to the guide is http://techesoterica.com/?p=1135
However, all I hear is "screen reader on" when I boot back into the desktop environment and type Orca after pressing Alt+F2. Pressing any other keys after the "screen reader on" message results in no speech. Does this no longer work with the Pi 4 and Raspbian Buster? If it does work, would someone mind giving me instructions to get a talking desktop up and running? Are there any other accessible Pi Linux distros out there with Orca pre-installed aside from Ubuntu Mate? I'd like to use that one, but I'm still waiting for the official image for the Pi 4 to be released.
Speaking of Orca, why isn't it included in Raspbian? It's sad that a blind person can't use the default Raspbian operating system out of the box, especially when this was made for educational purposes and to get more people into computing. I'm a little disappointed that all I can do with my Pi is use SSH. Does the Raspberry Pi Foundation have plans to implement the screen reader into future versions of Raspbian?
