i just had a look at the contents of 
void-live-x86_64-20191109-mate.iso, and it seems orca is not 
included. However, it's certainly available in the repos.

i'm not visually impaired myself, so i'm not really able to 
comment on this, beyond noting that the installer is textual - a 
TUI - rather than a GUI.

hey there,
thanks for responding!
i'm guessing that the installer is ran via terminal?
or inside it?
to conferm, gnome-orca is not on the live mate iso,
so unless it could be added, I will not be able to joine you,
could it be added?

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:

    https://github.com/void-linux/void-mklive

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

Okay, fair enough.

So Orca can function even if there's no GUI running? Orca can be 
run from the Linux console?

It depends on XBPS, so if your specific distro doesn't provide 
that as a package, you'll need to compile that yourself. (Checking 
https://packages.debian.org/stable/allpackages?format=txt.gz, it 
doesn't seem to be available on Buster, for example.) XBPS is 
available from https://github.com/void-linux/xbps.
