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 3.9.5.

Orca works with applications and toolkits that support the Assistive Technology Service Provider Interface (AT-SPI), which is the primary assistive technology infrastructure for Linux and Solaris.

Highlights of Orca 3.9.5:

• The text selection events can now cross into a different page;
• The Evince caret-navigation infobar is now showed;
• The application now uses the default locale if no family is specified for the default voice;
• Deprecated stock items have been removed;
• Key bindings are no longer disabled if the Num Lock is on in laptop mode.

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