My understanding of the discussion with Willie, which I also attended, is that Orca is able to be helpful not only for blind users but also for many other different disabled persons (such as people needing an input device different from the keyboard/mouse (movement disabled persons). So, as far as I understand, the Orca approach would be far more scalable to answer much more the needs of many disabilities.
