My distro is identical to yours, also on a 64 bit machine, and here is
how I configure speakup for both a software synthesizer and a serial
1. In /etc/rc.conf, my MODULES line looks like this:
MODULES=(ipv6 speakup speakup_soft speakup_ltlk)
2. In /etc/modprobe.d/modprobe.conf, add these lines:
options speakup_soft start=0
options speakup_ltlk ser=0 start=0
3. In /etc/rc.local, add these lines:
# start talking
talkwith soft espeakup
In the last group, the talkwith command could specify either device,
and once the syhstem is running, the talkwith command switches between
devices gracefully, I use sudo to run it as root.
Hope that elps.
