orca should work just fine in Xubuntu.
Is it on the liveCD, if you select the accessibility options from the 
boot menu it should start orca. I made it work for 6.10 but I haven't 
tested since.
On a nexisting Xubuntu system just install gnome-orca and the speech 
synthesis tools uused in Ubuntu, it is espeak I think.

let us know if something needs more work.
