Thanks Kyle,
I have extra USB sticks and SD cards to try Fedora. How do I activate Speakup to guide me during installation? What are the steps?

I was also able to start an install to an SD card inserted into the slot on my computer, but the slot writes so slow that I couldn't get halfway through the install in 8 hours, so I gave up on that. On the other hand, USB worked perfectly, both on a thumb drive and using a USB card reader.

I did notice that I didn't have access on the MATE spin to the alt+super+s shortcut to start Orca on either the live image or after installation, but entering orca in the run window certainly does work in both cases, and although I did need to tick the assistive technologies checkbox on the installed OS, I didn't have to do this on the live iso to gain access to a speaking installer. Hope this helps.
