It seems speech-dispatcher got stuck when trying to stop it. A week ago
I try installing Ubuntu 16.04 and experiencing that issue. I had to kill
it with "kill -9" then restart orca. I think ubuntu 16.04 is not stable
enough with orca. It crashed quite often on my system.
Now I use Debian 9 and it's pretty rock solid. Orca is running smoothly
and I have no need to restart it even once. If you have the option, you
may want to use Debian.

I need to be able to interact with the console for issuing commands and more importantly reading the output of those commands. I ran some simple commands like sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade and nothing was being read out to me using Orca. When I ran sudo apt-get install git things were being read out but when I pressed CTRL to stop the mass amounts of speech output I was unable to read the output in the window. When I press the super key plus ALT and S to stop and start the speech it is mostly unresponsive. Some times it will go off but then will not come back on for a while. Thanks

Do I need to install Gnome text based desktop? Is that even possible after the fact? Any help in getting this to work would be much appreciated.
