How can I disable orca at lightdm-gtk-greeter?

I guess you can type insert-Q to make Orca quit?

Basically, I want to disable orca at the prompt where I need to enter my
credentials before logging into 'MATE'.

Just wondering: why do you want to do this?  IIRC Orca doesn't speak
the password letters, just "bullet" or something like that, which
is actually useful to make sure that the password is getting typed
correctly (and not showing up in some other part of the login screen...)

No argument there , it is working as it should.
Has explained in a previous thread I install Debian for sited user and those users don't need orca speaking to them!!! :) That's why I disable speakup/orca from autamatically speaking but I need to keep orca/speakup when I help them.

I must say I never understood why installing Debian with accessibility would assume that accessibility should be enabled at boot on the installed system.

I'm playing with kernel boot parameter, could the following do what I want?

boot install DEBIAN_FRONTEND=text priority=low speakup.synth=soft

I'm open to any suggestions.
