Only gnome-orca and its dependences; it seems to install itself espeak and
so the couple orca (screen reader) + espeak (multilingual speech synthesis)
will be installed.
For braille, brltty is already installed if for example you entered at the
CD boot: prompt a line like brltty=bb,dd,tt (where bb = braille display, dd
the device, tt the brailel table).
There exist a package called brltty-x11 but this isn't mandatory to be
installed for the correct working of orca+espeak.

Well, that's the fantastic way the espeak package have been built; it
contains lots of languages, these may be changed at the 1st startup of Orca
from the Gnome environment (alt+f2 orca <enter>).
