You do this by passing quiet=1 to the speakup module. How you do that
depends on the distribution of gnu/linux you're using, and on if you
have speakup load in your initial ramdisk or not (assuming you have an
initrd). Typically, you want to create a file in /etc/modprobe.d. You
can call that file whatever you want, as long as it ends in .conf
(E.G. local.conf or speakup.conf). This file should contain the
options speakup quiet=1

Hmmm, first time I've heard of speakup resetting alsamixer settings.

That depends on what software synthesizer is being used, and on if you're using
espeakup, or speech-dispatcher, or something else. If you're using
espeakup, you need to export
to use espeakup through the second sound card. On debian and
derivatives, you can set this up in /etc/default/espeakup.
