I am trying to install the AMD64 version of 20.10.
As a blind user, I have been pleased with the care the developers have taken to ensure screen reader accessibility in Ubuntu Mate. I should have sent a thank you note a year ago.
I cannot figure out how to install 20.10 with Orca. After I have booted the USB stick, I press the alt-windows-s combination and Orca starts as expected; but I cannot navigate the installation window. Orca reports the window name as "Installer frame" or something similar, but I hear nothing when using the tab and arrow keys to try and find the usual installation options and buttons.
I hope I am doing something wrong. If the developers have decided accessibility is no longer a priority... well I'll be disappointed. For all I know, I am the only blind Ubuntu Mate user.
When I couldn't make it work, I installed 20.04 with no problems. From there, I am tempted to do a distribution upgrade to 20.10, but worry that there may be other screen reader issues.
Would someone kindly try to confirm this behavior before I submit a bug?
