looking for a speakup/speech dispatcher / orca expert

Hi all,


I am working on a derrative of debian called kali for penetration testing/computer forensics (actually I am working with the folks at offensive security) to help make the distro accessible.


So far we have a wheezy based distro that has an accessible installer, and orca starts on the gdm boot screen so it is possible to login  to gnome-classic.  After login, orca works fine.


My problem is that sometimes I want to run terminal sessions outside of gnome, but Speakup won't start even though it is installed.


Can anyone point me to some docs on getting orca, Speakup and speech-dispatcher to work together?
