Speakup under VMware Fusion 6

I'm wondering whether any of you can share some wisdom for running
Speakup in a virtual Linux machine. I picked up a Macbook Air recently,
added Fusion 6, and have Fedora 20 installed and working (mostly).
Couple quick questions:
1.) How can I bring Speakup up with my preferred speaking rate? It's
defaulting to rate 1, which is quite painful.
I'm launching Speakup from within rc.local. Can I use some kind
of command line argument in my script?
I no longer see anything about rate under
/sys/accessibility/speakup/,o suspect that old method is
history. Am I wrong?
2.) Caps Lock for pop up screen review. I haven't
solved this one, so would appreciate suggestions.
Strangely, FN+Command+Return does the "You killed
Speakup" and "I'm alive" toggle nicely. I can also
adjust rate and pitch with FN+Command+N, but not Caps
3.) The Insert Key -- There has to be some
successful mapping for that! <grin>
