* 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.
You can also read more about Orca at http://live.gnome.org/Orca.
* What's changed for Orca v2.26.2?
2.26.2 - 18-May-2009
* Fix for bug #466841 - Orca doesn't announce items when Alt+Tabbing
if Compiz is enabled. This fix is designed to improve Orca's access
to the basic window switcher in Compiz. There are still bugs in
Compiz which make providing compelling access difficult, but this
should at least make switching windows accessible.
* Fix for bug #577977 - provide speech feedback for "repeat last find"
* Fix for bug #580329 - Use show_uri() to display help window.
* Fix for bug #580423 - Remove deprecated libgnomeui dependency. Use
DBus org.gnome.SessionManager.Logout instead of
* Fix for bug #582684 - Arrowing left/right across tree tables causes
whole row to be spoken.
* Where can I get it?
