I had some problems to start with, too. I used a CD-RW disk. That didn't 
work. I had to use a CD-R. Pressing f5 and 3, I waited for about 2000 
years. Then pressed alt-cntrl-f1 and typed sudo brltty al <driver> -d 
and -t "text-table>.

Brltty came to life. I typed "orca -t" and responded to the prompts.

I pressed alt-ctrl-f7, and my braille display said "screen not in text 
mode". I pressed alt-f2, waited for a while, typed orca, waited for a 
while, and Orca loaded.

Did you do things differently?
