    Question Advice and help pleas (very uncommon question and very important)

    Hello kaly community I am in this forum to learn new things and also ask for help.
    I have a question it may sound strange, but it would help me a lot if I can solve this problem.


    So let me start by telling who I am. I am visually impaired guy who run Kaley on virtual machine. I am interested in security and stuff but anyways I am using thing, such a screen reader. As my main computer I use windows with screen reader and without any problems.
    So the question is can I install a screen reader okay? I wonder if it is possible. Ubuntu has installed by default called Orka, but there is other more suitable for command line interactions. There few screen readers available to Linux but I have no ideas how to get this working. Is it requires special packages or what. I tried to google around but well nothing is found that could help me. If there are advanced kaly users who can help me out I would defintlly appreciate that a lot because it would help mere to work withkaly. .

    The method I am using at a moment is a bit weard . I have enabled the bidirectional copying and pasting ability between my windows and VM kali. And if I need to read something long texts texts I copy everything in to txt file in to my windows side. and then read what was printed out in kaly. But it would be definitely much easier if I would able to use a screen reader in the kaly operating system and then I could make a bootable usb..

    Thanks I hope someone can help me out pleas it would mean a lot to me.

    So i tried to install orca in kali but did not have any luck. I wont say it is impossible but there was a note that it is unstable in kali here is a link http://pkg.kali.org/news/216393.
    Perhaps someone working on the issue can assist. It does note that it is of low priority.
    On a side note I did use the screen reader in the universal access under all settings if this helps in a pinch. Remember kali starts with sound off by default.

    Can you explain how did you got screen reader enabled via settings I am not too familiar with settings.
    I found a screen reader would you think it would work?
