Re: [orca-list] Accessible Distros

When you tried that with Fedora, did you just install Fedora 13 from disks 
or do the upgrade path from Moonshine up through Fedora 13?  Reason I'm 
asking is maybe starting with moonshine and upgrading through versions you 
might be able to get all the way upgrade to Fedora 17.  I don't know for

I've tried OpenSuse with a lot more success. If you manually launch Yast from
the run command you can usually get an accessible setup and do the install
using Orca. However, make sure to download the Gnome Live cd, not the Opensuse

As for Ubuntu 12.04 once you hear the drumbs press control+s to bring up Orca,
type in your user name and password, and login. Once logged in you can press
alt+f2, type orca, and enter to launch Orca.
