Thinking again about it, this makes unattended launches more difficult.
Such launches can be useful when a sighted user is working, and a
non-sighted co-worker comes to work over something. Starting the screen
reader from a launcher just for the time when he is there, and not
permanently through configuration, makes complete sense.
