Can anyone confirm this working first hand?
If so, what sorts of applications are possible, and are there voice 
choices for Orca?

The Raspberry Pi team reached out to an accessibility charity known as 
AbilityNet to help evaluate the Raspberry Pi desktop environment for 
improvements. Raspbian now supports Orca screen reader. Orca is compatible with 
most applications that use GTK or Qt toolkits. Other toolkits aren't compatible 
and may or may not work. You can also find a new pixel doubling feature in the 
Raspberry Pi Configuration menu, improving screen visibility for visually 
impaired persons.
