It would help to know which version of MATE and orca you are using.

Be aware that more and more applications use GTK3.

For instance MATE 1.18 has dropped all GTK2 code.

Let me quote this page:
gtk3 needs libatk-adaptor and libgail-common.

Maybe you could check that you have that?

You could post also on the orca mailing list, as this issue seems to be related to Orca.
