Announcing Orca v2.23.91

* 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
has been led by the Sun Microsystems, Inc., Accessibility Program Office
via continued engagement with its end users and generous contributions
from the Mozilla Foundation and wonderful community members.

The Orca v2.23.91 release is targeted for the GNOME v2.23.91 development
release and requires the latest at-spi/pyatspi infrastructure from GNOME
v2.23.91, including atk and gail.
