Re: Orca not stopping talking add more to this...restarting the X Server and even rebooting
didn't solve the problem.  I needed to go into the Keyboard Preferences
dialog and muck around with AccessX settings - I enabled StickyKeys and
then disabled it and things seemed to come back to life.  Very very odd.

We're looking at this on Solaris to see if the problem exists there,
too.  If it doesn't, I think this might be a Ubuntu problem, but I have
no idea how or what is making this happen.

though Orca no longer get keyboard events from the AT-SPI once you've
mucked with the NumLock key.  As a result, Orca won't interrupt speech
on a key press since it's not getting any key presses.

I can also verify this with the src/tools/ module in
the orca sources, and it looks like NumLock is toxic for me - once I've
enabled it, I'm hosed and need to restart the X server.

Thanks for the tip, it seems that that was my problem!

Does anyone know why this is so?  Is it intended behaviour or a bug or

Wow Orca is much more useful when you can stop speech!
