Hi Luis.
First you need to find the top panel pressing ctrl+alt+tab.
Since there, you need to press tab until you hear something like icon.
Press alt+f1 so that orca can announce the title of the icon.

Using the steps above you'll can find the network manager.
Now press shift+f10 and you'll find an option to edit the  connections.
