Re: Orca on Edgy -- update

Yeah Henrik!  Thanks much again for all your support.

At the GNOME Boston 2006 accessibility summit, we came up with an idea
that we'd like to propose to distributions that provide accessible
installs:  if an accessible install is used, enable accessibility
support (i.e., the /desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility gconf setting)
in the default gconf schemas.  This will prevent the need to re-enable
accessibility for your login session.

What do you think of this?

After some bug fixing in our boot system we now finally have Orca 
starting on the Live CD the way we intended. CDs found here:

and any Edgy release after RC should work this way.

New instructions for booting:

* Start the machine with the Edgy CD in the drive
* Wait for about 5-10 seconds (waiting too long --30 sec-- will cause 
the boot to continue without accessibility features)
* You are now at the boot options menu
* Press F5 for the the accessibility menu, 3 for screen reader and Enter 
to activate
* Press Enter again to boot the CD
* Wait 2-3 minutes as the CD boots
* You should now be greeted with 'Welcome to Orca'

The Orca+installer issue should also be sorted out today. We still have 
some trouble getting the magnifier to autostart though.
