Ah, that's another issue: GTK+ widget use atk for exporting information
in AT-SPI. For transferring that information to Orca, AT-SPI uses
bonobo (KDE people would like to replace that with dbus in the future).
There comes the gnome dependency. Now, for outputting speech, Orca has
drivers for gnomespeech and emacspeak. It doesn't seem to have a direct
driver for festival or speech dispatcher. I'm Ccing Willie for getting
his opinion on the issue.
