Thanks Kyle,

I downloaded the Fedora Mate version and I put it on a bootable usb 
drive, then I ran it and got orca to talk. For whatever reason, the 
speech came out of my laptop built-in speakers, not through my headset 
as I prefer. Braille did not come up at all, although my vario ultra is 
connected. I hit insert space and checked the orca settings and found 
Braille enabled there. I find this strange. I did not have this problem 
with mint, or slint, or coconut. It looks that the fedora team needs to 
do a little more work to make it better.
