Adding accessibility profiles after the fact?

Hello. I just bought a new laptop. Unfortunately, nothing I do gets the 
installation CD to come up talking, so I'm thinking that I'll be taking 
it into the store to have them do the install for me. To simplify 
matters, though, I'm wondering if it is possible to add/activate the 
blindness profile after the installation is done?

Yes, I can just run Orca once logged in. That won't make Orca run at 
login, however. I'm sure there are documents out there that explain how 
to configure accessibility at the login screen, but it might make more 
sense to just package the necessary configuration changes as a .deb that 
can be installed later. Does something like this exist, or is it 
possible via some other means?
