After that failure, I removed gnome and gnome-extra from this system.
So far as I can find out on this end, archlinux works great with
espeakup doesn't work any longer with emacspeak and speechdispatcher and
orca not at all. Until I find far better documentation on how to
actually get these other screen readers running and talking on archlinux
I'll confine graphical user interface stuff to other disks and other
systems. Next time I try to solve a captcha on Linux, I'll put a call
up to be my eyes and see what can be done that way since firefox is
dodgey in terms of being able to work with webvisum.
