I can't tell you if the live CD has orca available, but I've heard
semi-positive things about doing an instalation over SSH if you happen to
have that option available to you. I haven't tried it myself, mind you, but
that might be one thing to consider. Perhaps if it ends up working for you I
might be persuaded to give it a try on one of my machines.

Subject: [gentoo-accessibility] About to try an installation...blind.
I'm unfortunately running Debian Lenny, and all their software is up
to two years behind where accessibility and hardware support is concerned.
I'm trying to find a good method for installing Gentoo, but am having
problems finding documentation on whether Gentoo supports either SpeakUP or
Jupiter screen readers, or if the Live! CD has Orca available. I've
downloaded and burned the minimal installation disk and am still looking for
the non-torrent Live CD image, so haven't burned that one yet. I have found
the "Install from another OS" documentation, but am not sure if my screen
reader (SpeakUP) will continue to run during the installation. I'm also
wondering if when I compile the kernel, how I may have to compile either
SpeakUP, or patch the kernel with the Jupiter screen reader. Is there a
howto anyone can direct me to, or is SpeakUP already supported in one of the
kernels on the installation disk(s)? TIA for any help,
