run-as-root applications and Unity/gnome3

I can't seem to get the Ubuntu accessible installer to pre-configure
my system such that applications that are run as root such as Synaptic
get spoken.  Previously, this involved creating a .orbitrc file in the
/root directory but, I understand this is no longer the case with the
DBus port of at-spi.  Can someone please tell me what I need to
configure and what files, if any, I need to modify in order for these
applications to get spoken with Orca?
