Default Installing Ubuntu via Wubi and getting Orca up and running automatically

Hello all.
First post to this list after being on here for a few days. I have
joined as I want to get back into the world of Ubuntu. I am a former
computer studies student, obtained a certificate as a result, so should
be smart enough smiles.
Because I don't wish to use Ubuntu full time, I would rather install it
in some safe environment, like via Wubi, the Ubuntu installer program
for Windows. Now, I sort of have this to work, by choosing Braille in
the accessibility part of the installer. However, when I reboot, I am
asked to select a Braille display connection, like USB. Since I do not
have one, do I choose exit and if so will Orca still come up
automatically, both before and after log in?
I realize there is Vinux, but there is no real safe way to install,
except in a virtual environment. This is good, however it is sometimes
nice to try things on a physical set up, due to native hardware support,
improved performance, etc.

Thank you in advance for any enquiries. It will be greatly appreciated.

I have not tried Orca in WUBI but it should work pretty much as normal.

I am not sure off the top of my head how you run Orca in current
versions, but I can find out later, when I'm home, & will try to
answer then. Once you've opened it, there is a tick-box option within
the program to make it run at startup in future. It's also worth
setting it to log in automatically, as I don't think it can read the
setup screen.

But to be honest, I had better experiences with Vimux. It adds in some
useful extras, such as a console screenreader so that you can use the
system from the text terminal, without the graphical user interface
running at all. It's still not wonderful though - it's significantly
less accessible than Windows, in my experience.
