I have a recollection of documenting most of this on the speakup list
in response to a similar query a number of years ago. Unfortunately,
the speakup mailing list archives aren't easily searchable, and I
don't have a local copy of that mail.

Kirk, doing grep with a few of the file names in
/sys/accessibility/speakup against the list's mbox file archive should
find that message if it's in fact there. If you can please find it,
and post the date when it was sent, we can provide a URL to that
thread as a starting point. If my recollection is wrong, and such a
message isn't in the archives, I'll write up what I know about.
