<P><FONT SIZE=2 FACE="Arial">Hi All.</FONT>

<P><FONT SIZE=2 FACE="Arial">I am looking at various distros and trying to find one that offers a good range of accessibility support for both the console and X.&nbsp; Ubuntu seems to have made a lot of progress in X, but has (at the moment) lost a bit of momentum re the console.&nbsp; So have a lot of other distros due to all sorts of reasons relating to the kernel etc.&nbsp; But I do recall really liking Gentoo when I tried it out last year (releases 2006.1).&nbsp; SO was wondering where things were at re accessibility support in Gentoo.</FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2 FACE="Arial">e.g. I have been trying out a Ubuntu 7.10 Live CD and installation, and find that the default system seems to provide gnome with Orca which works pretty well all things considered.&nbsp; I also understand this is the case with Debian unstable once packages are updated.</FONT></P>

<P><FONT SIZE=2 FACE="Arial">SO I was wondering if anyone has managed to get a Gentoo installation up to the point of running Orca in Gnome, and if so, have you been able to do it with a minimum of fuss&nbsp; (e.g. something like emerge orca and it just works?).</FONT></P>
