You can't directly edit files in /sys or /proc.  The easiest way to change 
the pronounciation of a character is to use the speakupconf utility. 
First, as root, run "speakupconf save."  Then, make your changes under 
/etcc/speakup/i18n.  Last, run "speakupconf load."  This will apply your 
changes.  Make an entry in one of your scripts to run "speakupconf load" 
at boot to restore your customizations at startup.
