still no speech

Yes, your right kernel parameters are instruction to the code within the
kernel itself.  Like telling a child to wear their hat and gloves when going
out to play.

Look at the device instruction too, that doesn't look right.  I think that
there's a stray "f".

Hi Lenny -

I believe you should omit the path information for the last two
parameters on those lines. You should only specify the path for the
first two. In other words, the parameters that start with "speakup_synth
and "speakup_ser" should not have anything else in front of those key

Otherwise they sure look okay to me.
