I have an HP Envy laptop I bought last summer, and I'm also running 
Ubuntu 16.04. I see the first problem you reported, but I'm not sure if 
I've seen the second problem or not. I assume that this is because I'm 
still running Orca 3.18.2. I haven't upgraded myself, but I've seen 
posts from others on how to upgrade to Orca 3.26. I suspect this will 
solve my problems and maybe your's if you're still running the Orca that 
comes with Ubuntu 16.04.

When I am trying to select text to copy or cut it to the clip board Orca does not speak. Also when I am entering commands at the console Orca loses focus of the prompt and it will not allow me to type. I have to switch back and forth from the Desktop and the terminal window several times to get Orca to gain focus of the prompt.
