In earlier versions of Ubuntu drums would play when it was ready
for a login. Maybe a way around this would be for espeak to run
in command line environment to get a log in and then perhaps a
user could run startx to bring up a graphical display and
perhaps start orca. You could also try orca -s after keying in
alt-f2 or alternatively orca -r to replace whatever is running
and start orca again from scratch.
