Yes, that's why I suggested you test the .deb from snapshot.debian.org, or pinning.

I use this provided by squeeze yes.

Right. That's why I uninstalled pulseaudio, then installed the squeeze speech-dispatcher.deb via dpkg instead of apt to avoid dependencies issues, and in speechd.conf, replaced "pulseaudio" with "alsa"

How did you try this? Right I only tried with orca, not with espeakup.

Sorry, probably I didn't look at all the mails. As everybody here, my mailboxes are so much active.

I agree, that's why I still use oldstable and I'm worry for future. But as I want to help Debian, I test squeeze, wheezy, sid, etc. and I try to become a maintainer.

> Orca and Speech-dispatcher have both issues wich needs much fine tuning.

What do you mean? I needn't more customization than running spd as normal user instead of the service.

Thanks for your answers and tests, I'm sure our dialogue can be useful for everybody, for doc-purpose, bug-purpose, improvements-purpose.
