You'll find that barring a few refresh/flat review hickups, 
gnome-terminal works brilliantly. I am starting to use it instead of the 
console/speakup. Once the refresh issues are fixed, it will be ready for 
me to switch to full time i think.

Recent versions of OpenOffice 2.0 work with the standard GTK 
accessibility libs/atk. It works in Ubuntu, but I don't know what Debian 
do to their openoffice package, so its just trial and error at this 
point I would guess.
