Do you get speech when you type
spd-say "hello world"
If so, then speech-dispatcher is working. If not, edit speech-dispatcher's config files until the spd-say command works.
Once you have speech-dispatcher working, just
sudo modprobe speakup_sftsyn
Speakup will start talking.
If you want speakup to load autimatically on boot, add the line
Be aware, you will have to press print screen everytime you boot and log into Gnome since speakup will try to read
your X console. Since the print screen gets passed to Gnome, you will have to cancel the dialog.
