I have also filled task about this.
Orca requires speech-dispatcher but it also uses its python2 bindings often reported to as python2-speechd. Speech-dispatcher package no longer includes this. Both these packages have to be updated in order to avoid rendering systems operated by blind users without speech output after performing the update.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
This task depends upon

Reason for closing:  Fixed
Additional comments about closing:  Added a patched python2-speechd package based on 0.7.1 sources with some patches taken from 0.8. Changed orca dependencies to use this new python2-speechd package.

speech-dispatcher 0.8 doesn't provide python2 bindings upstream anymore, so the only fix here is downgrading speech-dispatcher for now.

Orca 3.8 which is close to release has been ported to Python 3.x, so it can use the python3 bindings then.
Comment by Peter Vágner (pvagner) - Tuesday, 19 March 2013, 11:25 GMT
Other distros such as debian and ubuntu have seperate python2-speechd packages. Would this be another option to package only the python2 bindings?
I dont think there are major changes in the interface.
Orca 3.8 should be part of gnome 3.8. I am afraid update from currently slightly outdated install of gnome 3.6 to new gnome 3.8 might not be as seamless as it could. The fact I may eventually loose speech output is worrying as well.
