the /sys file system is exported by the kernel as is /proc
kernel interfaces cause files to be created in this file system to which you
can read and write.
You are not meant to create files in this directory yourself; only read and
write values to them.
If a file does not exist then the version of speakup is too old to have the
files that exist in /sys/speakup allow you to change speakup's behaviour if
you write values into certain files.
If the file does not exist then the feature is not present in the kernel you

I cannot add files to the /sys folder in general.
So I checked the mount options in /etc/fstab; here's what I found:
sysfs /sys sysfs rw,nosuid,nodev,noexec 0 0
Are these options set correctly?
I can replace existing files, but not create new ones. I guess it must
have to do with that "noexec" option.
