Unfortunately this did not fix the problem. The problem still exists. I 
still have noticed this only when using Synaptic.

One interesting thing is that if it happens when I do this:

/) Go to eg virtual desktop 2 on Gnome/

2) start Synaptic on that virtual desktop

3) click Reload button

4) Go to e.g virtual desktop 1 and do something else like browse the web 
using firefox or something else

5) Let Synaptic to finish reloading the repository information,

6) Go back to virtual desktop 2 where Synaptic is running and where it's 
window is open

Orca stops speaking when you do the step 6. That happened again some 
minutes ago and that has happened many times. Synaptic was running and 
reloading on one virtual desktop and I was browsing facebook on another 
virtual desktop. Everything worked just fine until I did goback to that 
virtual desktop where Synaptic was running. When I did that Orca 
immediately stopped to speak. When I closed the Synaptic using alt + f4 
then Orca started to speak again.

And by the way I do not remember if this problem existed in Debian 
Jessie. Both of my laptops are quite new. I first installed Debian 
Jessien on those laptops, but I upgraded to Stretch soon after that. My 
desktop computer is still running Debian 7.0 "Wheezy". I did not really 
use Debian 8.0 "Jessie" much on those laptops so you can say that I 
jumped from Wheezy to Stretch. This problem does not exist in Wheezy and 
I really can not say if it existed in Jessie, but it does still exist in 
Stretch. I do not know if this problem exists in new Stretch 
installations. I am going to make a clean Stretch install when I buy the 
new SSD disk, but I can not do that right now.
