Announcing Orca v1.0.1 (GNOME 2.16.3 translation release for Orca v1.0.1)

* 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.  Under
development by the Sun Microsystems, Inc., Accessibility Program Office
since 2004, Orca has been created with early input from and continued
engagement with its end users.

* What's changed for Orca v1.0.1?

The sole goal of Orca v1.0.1 has been to provide updated language
translations of Orca v1.0.0 for operating system distributions that are
unable to include the Orca v2.17.x releases.  MANY MANY THANKS to the
translators that have done this work in their spare time.

Note that the Orca v2.17.x releases contain significant usability
improvements and additions over the Orca v1.0.x releases.  As such, we
highly encourage end users and distributions to work with the Orca
v2.17.x releases if possible.

Please see for more information on using Orca
and for obtaining the latest release.

* Updated and New Translations (THANKS!!!)
