Huh... The tripletalk uses the same driver as the doubletalk. So you're 
saying you typede, "modprobe speakup_ltlk" and it worked? I'm running 
the i386 version of devuan. I'm about as sure as I can be that my synth 
works. I can type "uname -r > /dev/ttyS0" and the kernel version is 
spoken via the tripletalk.
