That's not expected. Which version of espeakup are you using? Version
0.80 should be working fine in that regard.

That'd get an even more odd situation: characters below 256 would be
spoken in "english", while others would be spoken in the espeakup
language.  We should be able to just get the direct mode working fine
for everything.
