• Screen Reader


    Greetings All,

    I am blind. I cannot get the screen reader to function. It shows in accessibility options and it can be toggled on and off but there is not activity. I tried to install Orca but with the same results. All other audio functions such as MP3, Video or streaming work just fine and when I go to settings to check on the audio it functions well too,giving proper results to the test signals.

    I run an older system,a Winfast/Focxcom board with a dual core AMD 64 bit bit processor and on board AC 97 sound chips.

    Any ideas on where to go from here? Thanks for all you help in advance,

  • Hi,

    Try installing the latest version of orca from gnome’s git repository. It might contain bug fixes related to the issue you are having. There is a PKGBUILD available in the AUR called “orca-git” You can use yaourt to install it. Hope that helps!

    Best Regards,

  • Thanks, I see that but I get an error that says I don’t have a compiler installed. What should I install it correct this?

  • pacman -S base-devel

  • As @AJSlye has already pointed out, you need to install the base-devel group like this:

    sudo pacman -S base-devel --noconfirm
    

    Afterwards, you can install orca-git with:

    yaourt -S orca-git --noconfirm
    

    Cheers!

  • Thanks everyone, that did it.
