Hi there,
my system is based on Fedora 8 - laptop I use sometimes. My "normal"
system is mixture Fedora 8/9/10 + lots of soft compiled from source.

I have tried to install Orca from regular repo (2.20): in installs
correctly, (+ GNOME_speech / festival, Polish voice for Festival).
install epiphany (as told that it is working).

Problem: orca starts, says ""Welcome.." (in Polish) trying to read some
text stops at first polish national character.

OK, I was told to use newer version.
So i am trying 2.30 from source.
Need to install pyatspi as dependency (also from source).
Configure/make/install runs OK but orca does not start:

laurent laptop ~]$ orca

what am I missing?

Is in your machine running a process called 'at-spi-registryd'?
If don't, maybe the problem is that you don't have at-spi's dbus
service up & running

After reinstalling everything (festival-*, at-spi-*, gnome-speech) I
have arrived at my "starting point":
working old orca.
Now reinstalling orca 2.30: miracle it starts...

festival 1.96 (fc7/8), at-spi-* from F10

But main problem persists: spelling rewinds and stops after first polish
national character.

Any ideas?
How to test festival?

To test festival you can do:

echo "Some random text just for testing purposes" | festival --tts

If everything is fine, it should say you something.
