And I'm back. The first thing I notice is that "volume control" is now
called sound, and it has all the options I expected. There seems to be
an improvement in speech-dispatcher's responsiveness and overall
performance over Ubuntu's implementation as well. So far, I'm impressed.
There are a few issues with what seems to be a very fast dropout of the
speech during very short letters, but it's not a showstopper for me.
Perhaps there's another setting somewhere I need to tweak.
Interestingly, I only started noticing this blip after I installed
pulseaudio-gnome, which pulled in alsa-plugins and pulseaudio-alsa.
