How do I get the orca screen reader to work with firefox? Or do people use a different screen reader/browser combination?

@yarmo It just worked for me, though sometimes I think it did require restarting Firefox after enabling Orca.

@yarmo @VincentTunru It depends of your distro ... With Manjaro it was a little bit tricky. But i can't remember the path i take to get things works.

Look if the *speech-dispatcher* is installed and well configured

@hs0ucy @VincentTunru yes, it is installed. I could hear the voice but it wouldn't read out anything on the website, just the keypresses.

A Firefox restart later, everything works perfectly now.
