Ok well I think you need to patch the kernal and then compile the kernal 
again I think.
Do you know that speakup is just for the terminal?
All instructions and the speakup patches can be found at.

BTW How are you finding ubuntu. What problems are there. Are you dual 
booting? Is it pretty accessible?
I know this is a little bit off topic for this thread but I am 
considering using ubuntu.
Maybe I should try the livecd...
