So I installed arch on my old pc and I'm looking for a good window manager. I got mate installed but I can't get orca or sound to work. Has anyone had this problem?

I have the same issue with an Arch VM.

And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked things straight. These things will I do unto them, and not forsake them.
Isaiah 42:16

When does this happen: on the install CD or after?

Post 1 said that it happens on Mate installed, so I assume this happens after the installation.
Try installing the pulseaudio package from the repos. sudo pacman -S pulseaudio.

This isn't a vm and I have my headphones plugged in and I can get audio on the speakup but not orca for some reason.

Make sure pulseaudio is installed.

First: arch itself doesn't use Orca, because it's a console system
2. Do you use talking arch image?
3. If yes, type: alsamixer and press enter, wait several seconds, press up arrow some times and check if you will get speech.
