Is the current default speed the one you refering to e. g. by invoking espeak on
the shell (-s 150)? This one should be ok, since it's already very slow. People
I've met (and which didn't use a speech synthesizer before) understood text
spoken with this speed.

In general, I think a „welcoming” speed is the best.
