Hi.  Does the DECtalk server show up when you run test-speech from
the console?  If not, then the gnome-speech package didn't build the 
DECtalk driver.
If the driver is built, you should be able to change the voice in 
preferences, speech voices, edit absolute.
Don't forget to use alt down arrow to activate the combo boxes
in the absolute voices dialog.  Change the engine driver first
and then use the engine voices to change the voice.

I'm sure it's documented somewhere, but I have no idea where.

Hope this helps.
