To get it in official ArchLinux Repository you might need to wait til KDE Plasma 5.26 is released. 

But i just searched a easy way for testing KDE Neon Development nightly using docker.  As users should be able to get involved in accessibility development and testing process.

I m currently not on my machine but i already have a working howto to share with you.

By the way, KDE just votes its goals. KDE votes 3 goals. Only 6 goals available for voting. Accessibility is one of them. So the chance is very heigh that Plasma 5.26 was just the first shot of a long series of accessibility improvements. By the way most of recent  work is done by carl swan and fusionfuture. So the cherry goes there. 

I m currently mostly busy in getting orca rebased on an plugin architecture.

Interesting times ahead in terms of accessibility.

Cheers chrys
