Sorry ocrdesktop ( or better its bindings python-tesserwrap) broke with tesseract 4.0
Some rework is needed first to recreate the compatibility.
It also seems that something worse happens to the creator of tesserwrap. I fixed while working on ocrdesktop and ocrpdf some bugs in his bindings and tried to contact him in several channels without answer. Aso his twittering stopped at this time... this makes me disappointed :(

The sound issue I’ve found is that with eSpeak, speech is not stopped instantly when interrupted with either new speech or the control key, and sound effects, if played quickly, do not play one at a time. Also, the Mate desktop seems to be rather slow, like after launching a program that requires my password to run, Orca freezes.
