I just found that my Ubuntu has a quirk  Maybe others have it too.
I have Thunderbird.  when the password box comes to get into my mailbox 
it will not work if ORCA is on.
It will work if I shut Orca down.  But then, after downloading mail,  I 
have to reboot to get Orca on again.
I think the echo of the star etc causes the password to go out scrambled.
This has gotta be tuff for a blind user.
Another quirk is at first ORCA read all input of CapsLock+; didn't work, 
then after a week it did, and would read a paragraph only, and then stoop. 
Now, after installing Voxin, successfully with expert help, AND after an 
update of thunderbird it (Caps-Lock+;)  reverts back to doing nothing 
reading mail..
