Re: [orca-list] Installing Ubuntu mate 20.10 with orca

    OK I figured out exactly what's happening and how to work around it. When starting the live Ubuntu-MATE iso, even if you turn on the screen reader as soon as you hear the tune, it is enabling assistive technologies too late, so it has no immediate effect. This is how I worked around it and got a speaking installer.

Start the live iso normally by pressing the enter key a few seconds after booting, or just wait, as the timeout will take you to the same place. Once you hear the tune letting you know it's started, press alt+super+s to turn on the screen reader. Press tab, space, tab and space. After the first space, you may hear the word "frame" spoken. Just ignore it and move on to the second tab and space. You should hear "screen reader on" again. Now press control+alt+d and your desktop should gain focus. Now you can press alt_f1 and go up to logout. Press the logout button and then press the enter key when you hear the bongo drum sound. You will hear "eader off," then "screen reader on." Now just opening the install Ubuntu MATE icon from the desktop will start a speaking installer. Hope this helps.
