How to stop SpeakUp saying 'Capital'

If you're using pulse then my changes won't be relevant to you because
the changes are applied to wave.cpp which is used for portaudio.
I now have speech-dispatcher and speechd-up running with espeak compiled
for portaudio and sd configured for alsa.
I have also installed Orca on the default Raspbian with these changes
applied but so far whenever I try to run Orca the card flakes out.
Beginning to think it's just a step too far for the Pi. Might work with
a lighter desktop than lxde.
I can send you the script that applies the changes if you want.
Have you tried trapping the kernel errors with a serial console? On the
Pi it is caused by the VCHIQ baulking at a null pointer caused by
latency set too fast.
