it would be helpful to try what's available in unstable:

so that we can spot whether that's a regression over the past few days,
or whether the regression was in the uploaded debian-installer package

I seem to recall speech synthesis was OK when I uploaded the images,
which I tested on amd64. I haven't checked the dailies yet.

(It would also help to mention which exact image you're using, cdrom,
netboot, etc.)
