Orca speaks through speech-dispatcher which manage the audio output.
but please note that as of today, there is no audio driver for pipewire in
speech-dispatcher, help welcome to provide one:
meanwhile I suggest that you just edit /etc/speech-dispatcher-speechd.conf,
Indeed the corresponding software should be installed.
