I have been studying Ubuntu 12.04 for a while. If everything works fine, I would like to switch to it from Windows 7. I have searched the net on the way to check battery status with Orca but i not yet have an answer. Could someone resolve my problem? Thanks!
Here is an option. It does not use Orca -- I'm sorry, but I don't know how to use it.
If this kind of solution is fine for you, but you need something more complex, just respond, and I will update my answer.
