Hi, all,

I am installing Samuel Thibault's Debian with espeakup.

I am having a problem because I have an Intel onboard sound card, which 
is not well-supported by ALSA. I've spent a few hours googling this and 
have found various solutions for systems that are already set up, but 
they don't apply to installing a system.

Has anyone found a way to work around the lack of speech caused by this 
problem? I've tried turning up the volume and unmuting the sound.
