This bug was fixed in the package gnome-orca - 3.16.2-1ubuntu4

gnome-orca (3.16.2-1ubuntu4) wily; urgency=medium

  * Prevent Orca from being launchable via Unity dash search, as the preferred
    way for starting Orca is from Universal access, or via the Alt + Super + S
    keyboard shortcut (LP: #1361139)
