Done February 20, 2014. Speakup 3.16 was installed with a kernel upgrade.
I use a litetalk synthesizer and as of now, speakup has been broken by
this last update. It is possible to hear speakup talk as the system boots
up to the login prompt but then it is not possible to get slackware to
respond to anything entered on a usb keyboard so it's impossible to login.
This has been an ongoing situation with slackware and what I normally did
was first allow speakup to initialize and find the synthesizer then shut
speakup off and later turn speakup back on when things got close to the
login prompt. Now, speakup no longer responds to the keyboard after
initialization so speakup cannot be turned off. Utillinux was also
upgraded and may be responsible for some of the trouble.
