In Reply to: RE: [gentoo-accessibility] setting up orca on gnome on gentoo by James Homuth
Hi,
Thanks. I was able to restart world and it completed. When i logged in
to gnome and atempted to run orca no speech output. I thought it was a
volume issue with alsa, but using mpg123 from the console i was able
to play an mp3. The orca window appears to come up but no speech
feedback.
Suggestions welcome.
Thanks.
Dave.
