Yes, the installer is run from the terminal. The installer is an 
ncurses-like text interface. It doesn't make use of a GUI, so even 
if Orca came on the ISO, it could not be used with the 
installer. (Unless i'm misunderstanding Orca's capabilities.)

If you need Orca for the install process in particular, then the 
preceding applies. If you don't necessarily need Orca for the 
install process, but need it more generally, then even though it 
doesn't come with the ISO, you could still easily install it after 
installation by running:

    # xbps-install gnome-orca

If you want to create your own live ISO containing MATE and Orca, 
follow the instructions at:


That's probably also the place to request that Orca be made 
available on the live ISOs by default.
