Oops, looking at the utils.sh script, it is explicitly set to on there.
Do we know exactly why this is so?  It looks like it poses problems on
Tony's machine.  I can see in the changelog on 19th Sep 2005:

initscript: Don't set "Audigy Analog/Digital Output Jack"
The driver should set this up properly

So perhaps we should just re-comment that part to let the driver
automatically enable the proper way?  It is a quite serious bug in this
case, because without software speech, makes the installer becomes
unusable for Tony on that machine.
