Subject: no speech in GDM even after enabling related variables

Hello,

I installed the stable Gnome 2.32 as found in the current portage tree, 
then I followed along the instructions in the accessible login page of 
the Orca wiki, but no success. Here are the commands I have echoed at 
gnome-terminal, in this order:

su
chsh -s /bin/bash gdm
su - gdm
gconftool-2 --set --type bool  /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility true
gconftool-2 --set --type bool 
/desktop/gnome/applications/at/screen_reader_enabled true
exit
chsh -s /sbin/nologin gdm

Then I added the gdm user to the audiio group in /etc/group.

After verifying that Orca was still not speaking, I went to 
gnome-terminal again and ran as root gdmsetup, then enabled 
accessibility in its respective tab, yet Orca remains silent at gdm. Any 
tip please?

Thank you,
Cleverson
