Announcing Orca v2.31.1

* What is Orca?

Orca is a free, open source, flexible, and extensible screen reader
that provides access to the graphical desktop via user-customizable
combinations of speech, braille, and/or magnification. Orca development
was led by the Sun Microsystems, Inc., Accessibility Program Office with
generous contributions from the Mozilla Foundation and Corporation.
Orca is currently a community project driven completely by volunteers.
