I solved my problem.
After going into the factory settings dialog, I saw that none of the
default sets were installed and, even after trying to install them, it
kept saying na for the version number. I figured it was just easier to
uninstall and reinstall Window-eyes, rather than trying to do surgery on
profiles. This method worked and I now have a working copy of
Window-eyes, working normally.
