A few other fixes were also implemented in this version

Orca, a free, open source, flexible, and extensible screen reader that provides access to the graphical desktop via speech and refreshable Braille, is now at version 3.7.2.

Highlights of Orca 3.7.2:

• This is the first real/official Python 3 release of Orca;

• Use for() instead of map() in cleanup();

• Braille email address auto completions in Thunderbird has been fixed;

• Pkill no longer fails to kill Orca in Python 3;

• The performance of building flat review context has been improved;

A complete backlog of updates and bug fixes can be found in the GNOME repository.
