I tried an old ubuntu live cd but never go my m-audio to work.
I have an m-audio card so i really don't know if such profesional cards will
work with orca.

	It should talk after activating the screen reader. I
haven't had much time to try it out yet, but I did get the Live CD and boot
it on a laptop. I waited until the disk slowed down and tried Enter then
down arrow then F5 then 3. The system loaded stuff of the CD for about 7
minutes during which time there was a tiny couple of drum beats and then a
musical chord containing more purcussion sounds and then, so far, dead

	That tells me the sound interface works but I must have
not hit the magic combination to get speech going.

The image I used for the live cd is the current live ISO image from the
ubuntu site.
