Bug#690653: speakup-tools: bashism in /bin/sh script

Package: speakup-tools
Version: 1:0.0~git20110720.1-1
Severity: important
User: debian-release@lists.debian.org
Usertags: goal-dash

Hello maintainer,

While performing an archive wide checkbashisms (from the 'devscripts' 
package) check I've found your package containing a /bin/sh script making 
use of a bashism.

checkbashisms' output:
>possible bashism in ./usr/bin/speakup_setlocale line 6 (read with option
>other than -r):
>read -p "Choose the language " r

Not using bash (or a Debian Policy conformant shell interpreter which 
doesn't provide such an extra feature) as /bin/sh is likely to lead to 
errors or unexpected behaviours.

You can find hints about how to fix bashisms at:

Thank you,
Raphael Geissert
