There is another issue for getting accessible login on a new install.
Basically when you install now there is a file /var/lib/gdm/.gconf.path
which gets gconf to load settings from a system wide but read only
source using settings to the GDM user only if they are defined. The
problem with this is that as the system wide settings define
/desktop/gnome/interface/accessibility then when you try and set this it
says it cannot set the key because the source is read only. temporarily
removing this file from /var/lib/gdm/ will allow you to set the gconf
keys needed for accessible login.
My questions go:
* Is this .gconf.path file a standard file for gconf in GDM?
* Is this really a gconf or gdm bug, where should I report it?
* Is there a better way to tell gconf to set the value by using the user
local settings files?

Yes; please read the other messages I pointed out on this list and the
speechd list concerning running speech-dispatcher as a system
service. I also recently mentioned the package up on AUR called
speech-dispatcher-git which has all the speech-dispatcher configs in
place to support this function.
In addition, there is one hack you have to do for now until I get a
resolution to this and that is with /usr/bin/orca. You will have to
go into that script and just before orca gets started, insert a line
to source /etc/profile.d/speechd.sh. This will set the environment
variable, $SPEECHD_ADDRESS which is needed to connect to the
speech-dispatcher server. Be sure speech-dispatcher is already
running and verify that spd-say speaks a test string before restarting
gdm and you should be good to go.
