Espeak Problems

I did not do this, actually.  When I did, the thing works now.
What I'm wondering is how to change punctuation settings?  I'm not getting 
any punctuation at all spoken, and I want to get at least some.  (Changing 
defaultpunclevel in speechd.conf didn't seem to do the trick, unless I need 
to reboot the machine first?)
