> One feature which would be very useful for partially-sighted users
> would be to be able to use a mouse shortcut (e.g. orca + mouse click),
> to tell that one wants a continuous read from the position pointed by
> the mouse. It is a bit like the sayall command, except that one does
> not have to first bring the cursor to a given position (which may even
> not be possible for some text), and the reading starts at the mouse
> position, and not necessarily at the beginning of the paragraph.
