Compiz is a problem for Orca and it can be simply resolved by removing all
compiz-related packages already installed on Ubuntu, doing this will stop
with making crash or block Orca at boot time, by me it was stopping with
talking at the welcome message (intrepid distro), after I removed all
compiz packs I can boot my system and it talks and works again;
idem I did the same on the pc of my wife with the same effect.
So as blind you don't need compiz, and the best thing to do is removing it
