Herd 5: Orca is not started

I had the same problem on Herd 4. On the live cd I can't get braille
or speech. Even with Alt F2 and doing it manually. It says something
about the adaptive technology thing not working.
Can someone tell us if this has been reported and if it has been fixed
on the daily build yet? I don't have a lot of cds that I can just burn
through testing builds.
Please, update people on what is going on. I have an older display I
want to test out. And I would like to have everything working by
release day as I don't want to wait another 6 months before a release
is completely accessible to the general public. That's a big selling
point you know.
