Hi there Atilla, and thanks for the tip.  Unfortunately though, it 
didn't work.  One thing I've also noticed is that even in the orca 
preferences box, and terminal, I have absolutely no speech.  I hear Orca 
say "starting Orca Preferences", and that's it.  Oh yeah, it'll also say 
goodbye to me when I quit Orca.  From what I can tell so far from 
exploring in 2d, I am impressed with the way Unity is shaping up 
accessibility wise.  Will the recent fixes to last week's Unity bug be 
merged soon?  I really hope soon I can get back to a usable system, 
where I can use more than just the launcher and dash.  Again, thanks for 
the help.
