I know it doesn't answer your question, but your feedback might help to
fix the problem with Speech Dispatcher.  Were you using Orca with Speech
Dispatcher backend, or a Speech Dispatcher Gnome Speech driver?

Note that Speech Dispatcher backend allows Orca to communicate directly
with Speech Dispatcher.  See

Did you try using Speech Dispatcher with anything else than espeak?

Best regards, Tomas
