Hmmm, maybe I was confused about the installer you are using or perhaps what I found was too old. In looking at debian accessibility there is reference to the gnome live cd and it does talk about starting orca. I'm pasting what it says (can't figure out what super-alt-s is!) and paste the link.

The gnome liveCD has screen reader support. At the boot menu, one has to type enter (TODO: add beep). Then the desktop launches up (TODO: add beep), and one can press super-alt-s to start Orca.

I was thinking about trying the live cd in them to see whether that would do wifi for either of these machines but frankly this link below looks rather confusing so I don't know whether or not I'll try it. I imagine you have already read this so it's probably not helpful but it's all I've found so far.
