Obtainable where?

After reading a bunch of messages off of the ubuntu-accessibility (or 
similarly named) mailing list, it looked as if at least some versions of 
the Ubuntu CD contained a bootable talking installer using Orca or some 
such arrangement (Hardy).

However, I have been unable to discover this in the 8.04.x isos - either 
desktop or server.
I was going to try alternative, but since that is using a text based 
install, it seemed unlikely Orca would be used there, and I knew that 
speakup was no longer available in official releases, and was not likely 
to be for a while.

So somewhat perplexed.

I'm obviously missing several somethings here.
I know this is somewhat off topic, straying into orca, but I still 
prefer a speakup solution, if one is available, which it seems that it 
might be.
