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
