I also would add that orca really has come along way since I started to
use it. Probably the biggest gap on Linux it has filled is access to
firefox, a browser which most websites support. There are other
applications as well (eg. eclipse, skype through the pidgin plugin (only
got that working recently, still got to try it out), openoffice (I know
there are other ways of writing documents, eg. LaTeX, but sometimes you
have to work with others and they work in word), etc) but firefox is
probably the one I use most and value the most.
I do feel orca is now something one can rely on (well there are
occasions where it goes wrong but its getting less and less) and I think
because of how well orca works I am now prepared to look at other
systems such as opensolaris where I may not have the back up of
something like speakup (I hope to get YASR working on opensolaris as a
back up but the need is getting less and less and YASR doesn't really
So well done to the orca team and I look forward to what is to come in 2010.

choices by making various X applications accessible.
Thank you to the developers for a superb effort in 2009, and we all hope for
more successes in the year to come.
