Thanks. I don't have a synth that supports indexing. But it looks like
this fix by Dan Carpenter likely addresses the issue:

handle_cursor_read_all() in main.c ultimately calls into
spk_ttyio_in_nowait. If value returned by spk_ttyio_in_nowait() is 0xff
when 0x00 is expectd then sentence count and index count will be
different (higher in this case) than expected.

I have update speakup.tgz to include this fix. If the above explanation
makes sense then please test it when possible.
