Start what? The system or orca?
Lots of people have seen this; please look at the archives.
Also, make sure your system is updated: sudo update-manager or sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade

i use hardy with the version of orca that comes with it.
has anyone resolved this problem as it is very annoying for
example reading a web page and finding the speech goes dead a bit
like running the demo of a commercial screenreader in windows
where it times out after so many minutes of use.

You can quite easily restart orca and resume reading though?
Alt f2 and type orca.
Yes, this needs to be looked at though.
I use debian and have no problems, but also have a ubuntu partition for this reason, so will do some testing when I have time.
