Hey just letting you know before all this hard work.
I believe you are blind?
If so you will need to use a ubuntu vmware image. (You may need access to
a full screen console.) so orca might not be enough.
I suggest you think about dual-booting if your blind.
A vm is kind of tricky when your blind.
Its ok for a desktop in ubuntu but a full screen console won't work with
speech easily. You need to patch a kernel. And build it.
If you own a braille display its fairly easy to get braille working in a
full screen console.
(and with orca too...)
