Bug#386578: speechd-el: speechd-speak-read-.* don't speak

Package: speechd-el
Version: 2.0-1
Severity: serious


  - BRLTTY 3.7.2-3.1 started up and running in text-mode with correct
    perms on BRLAPI key file (not sure it helps but speechd-el info
    mentions BRLAPI),
  - speech-dispatcher 0.6.1-2 started up and running with
    speech-dispatcher-festival 0.6.1-2 module,
  - GNU Emacs{21-nox,-snapshot-nox} started with -q flag,
  - "M-x speechd-speak RET" issued i.e. global speaking toggled on.

Well I can't get any speech from any of
speechd-speak-read-{line,buffer,region,...} defuns despite "M-x
speechd-say-text RET Hello world! RET" does speak perfectly.  So
essential functionality of speechd-el is broken.  This is a serious
bug as some people with sight-impairment may rely on it to get access
to their Emacs environment.
