Thank you very much - you saved me many frustrating hours!:)

Are you just using speechd-up with speakup, so that it can use
speech-dispatcher? Or should espeakup actually work as well? 

Only problem is that it seems to have disabled sound in the gdm3 log in
screen i.e. pressing up arrow at the top of the list no longer plays the
alert sound. Though this is really not a problem, unless the bug with
orca starting with gdm3 is fixed and thus sound can't work for orca. 

BTW, how are people dealling with the log in screen? 
Just a blind log in or using startx? Or is there a better method. 
Auto log in is another option I suppose. 
I know it works on squeez, so I'm referring to wheezey here.
