Linux Mint. I tried to get Orca working on my system, but it doesnt
capture the key bindings (It is supposed to capture INS-Numpad and
WindowsKey-Key combinations) and all it does read menus and window
titles which is really just annoying. It looks like Orca might work
better with Unity. The best thing shes found on her own is some
pricey windows software.

Its for Windows not Linux but nvda is (allegedly) as good or better
than the pricey commercial software (Jaws) but is free/open source
and developed by a couple of blind programmers.
