My focus for Orca has been limited to providing compelling access to
office productivity applications, so MUD is definitely something that
would not have been on my RADAR screen.
What we're seeing here, however, is one of the many values of open
source and the ability of a community to work well together in a
productive and helpful way. I think it is fantastic that Javier has
written a script for MUD, and I encourage others to jump in and
contribute to areas that they might want to explore.
For areas to consider where you might help, we've created a "How Can I
Help?" section on the Orca WIKI: http://live.gnome.org/Orca. It
includes suggestions for both the technical and non-technical person.
I'm also open to discussions on improving the core of Orca itself. We
can learn a lot by looking back in time and learning from our successes
and failures. What may seem stupid now may have been a hard decision to
make back then, but at least we made a decision and moved forward. :-)
In addition, we can all keep adding value to Orca for each other by
working together. This stuff gives me goosebumps.

So Orca can works with it prety well! You can also get it from http://www.gnomefiles.org/app.php/gnome-mud
However, I have made a little script to improve the user experience using this application with Orca.
The script automatically speaks the text as it arrives in the incoming text area, and keeps a list of the
latest text spoken, so you can use alt 1 to alt 0 to speak the latest 1 to 10 messages. This script is
similar to the Gaim one.
I have just filed it in bugzilla bug #410302 so you can give it a try. Download the attachment and copy it
under ~/.orca/orca-scripts directory and test/comment it whatever could be improved or added.

I don't see either of these programs on my Ubuntu system, but
if they are console apps or gtk2 apps, they should work.
