It is very important to know which distribution
(stable/testing/unstable) and which Speech Dispatcher version (0.7 or
0.6.*) you use.  There are important changes in use of Speech Dispatcher
0.7 and unless you use stable distribution you should start with Speech
Dispatcher 0.7.  If you upgrade from Speech Dispatcher 0.6.* to 0.7 on a
new installation, I suggest to purge the old speech-dispatcher package
before installing the new version.

When I know whether you use stable + 0.6* or testing/unstable + 0.7 then
we can go on.
