[Pkg-xfce-devel] Bug#760778: xfce4-session: Please depend on gnome-orca

Package: xfce4-session
Version: 4.10.1-8
Severity: important
User: debian-accessibility at lists.debian.org
Usertags: a11y


ATM, with a fresh XFCE installation, enabling "Enable assitive
technologies" does not actually start the orca screen reader, because
the screen reader does not get installed along the XFCE installation.
XFCE should thus depend on the gnome-orca, just like gnome depends on
gnome-orca for instance. I guess xfce4-session would be the natural
choice for this dependency, thus assigning to this package.

Note: for now, Orca will not actually start because of bugs 760777 and
760740, but that's not a reason for not adding the dependency in XFCE
