Installing Pop_OS! Using Virt-Manager and Screen Reader

The video below is a demonstration of how a blind user using a screen reader (called Orca) can install Pop_OS! using virt-manager. The video begins by launching virt-manager, create a virtual machine, install Pop_OS!, and work with the GNOME 3 desktop environment. The demonstration went okay; however when activating the screen reader for the VM, the screen reader got turned off in the host. I tried turning on the screen reader, but that didn't work, so I had to use my mouse to activate the screen reader from accessibility menu.
