spd-say seems confused.

Assuming you want to continue using speech-dispatcher as a system wide
service, be sure you have started speech-dispatcher.  Add /speechd to
your DAEMONS array in /etc/rc.conf or at least run thd daemon by hand
by typing,
/etc/rc.d/speechd start
to get it going for now.  Then see how things go.  If you would rather
use it as a user based deal, then edit
/etc/speech-dispatcher/speechd.conf and uncomment the AutoSpawn line
at the bottom of the file.  In that situation, you would not need to
have the speechd daemon running at all.

Note, this is for Arch Linux users.
