Subject: [gentoo-accessibility] setting up orca on gnome on gentoo

I'm trying to get orca going on gentoo. The gnome version used is 2.26. I've
tried googling and asking on the orca mailing list, without success.
I installed gentoo following the handbook except used a serial terminal,
this is in a virtual machine as i unfortunately only have one machine. Later
i proceeded to install gnome, which failed. Before the install would
complete successfully libxml2 needed to be installed. I next installed orca
and started up gnome. I had to make some changes to custom.conf so i could
log in and loaded the accessibility modules per instructions on the orca
site. When i tried to start orca via either the alt+f2, orca or in a
terminal with orca --text-setup i get to the second screen where i'm
prompted for the speech server always i choose gnome speech and then i hear
no more speech. I've also installed the java-access-bridge, but am assuming
there's a configuration step i'm missing.
Any suggestions appreciated.
