Bug Description

With the Orca screen reader enabled, the launchers on the desktop ("Install Ubuntu Mate 16.10" and "Ubuntu Mate's Home" for example) won't speak.

You should be able to move with the arrow keys and hear them spoken, but this does not happen.

Running the latesed updates in ubuntu mate 17.10 orca is silent when on desktop or in menus, but speaks in apps like firefox, thunderbird. Not suere if this is similar, but adding my input here just in case. Using a vertual machine if that matters or not.

In Ubuntu-MATE-18.04.1 I see the following situation: if the desktop is empty, Orca pretends , as if the desktop does not exist at all. For example, you can not access the desktop using the keyboard shortcut CTRL + ALT + ESC or similar.
