 It's old, very well known and never corrected (and probably not 
 intended to be corrected) bug in pulseaudio.

 Try start espeakup after pa start. There is a lot of bugs in Ubuntu 
 espeakup and speechd-up configuration, so you probably should use 
 update-rc.d and manually change espeakup priority.
 Or if you are really brave - see (article in Polish). 
 But be extremally carefull with this program, installation scripts makes 
 many changes in configuration (switches console from UTF-8 to ISO-2, 
 installs it's own keyboard, installs Polish speakup translation and 
 something more). Contact me before installation.
