You are welcome. However, a lot of people other than I had major
contributions to speakup.

Hahah, that remains to be seen.

That is absolutely great. As far as I know, you are the first person
to report actually getting speakup to run on the Raspberry Pi. There
have been quite a few folks attempting it however. As you and others
have mentioned, some condition that regularly burks it is necessary
before much muscle can be brought to the fix. In general speakup is
very stable on most desktop and laptop machines, outside of a few
known problems.

That is also great news. you can clone the website for with:

git clone

and have your way with it. Any changes you make you can send me a
patch and I'll apply it or give you an account you can make changes
directly, later on.

Well that's it then, colour me gone!
