Hi Josh,

since Ubuntu has got so many GTK issues nowadays, with or without the
GNOME 3 PPA, I suspect you better go with another distro. But I might be
mistaken, so I recommend to join the Linux audio users mailing list,
since several blind people are subscribed to this list. I guess for
making music you better use Braille and text based applications instead
of Orca, but I might be mistaken again, so join the list:

I'm forwarding this message so I don't forget later. We should probably
look at including accessibility features for Ubuntu Studio and see if
Xubuntu would be in need for some as well.

I checked the ubuntu studio manifest. I am a blind Ubuntu user wanting 
to use ubuntu studio and other blind and disabled people would benefit 
from this as well. But in ubuntu studio13.10 could you please add the 
latest version of the gnome-orca screen reader, at-spi and qt-at-spi the 
espeak speech synthesizer and svox pico synthesizers and the propper 
speech dispatcher modules? I know of some blind people who ubuntu studio 
would benefit. Also if any audio related software is found to be not 
accessible with the Orca screen readers and braille displays using 
brltty perhaps you could help to fix such issues?
