Added the Debian sound-icons package maintainer and the "Debian Accessibility 
Team" mailinglist to the CC.

I'm using Debian Jessie, it has an seperate package for the sound-icons them 
selves and i have it installed:
$ dpkg -l | grep speech

Double checked and they are in: /usr/share/sounds/sound-icons/ which corresponds
with the path in speech-dispatchers espeak.conf file.

Is there by your knowledge an option on package build-time that could be 
involved (and is perhaps not enabled) ?

I will try to switch on some more debugging again, see if it comes up with 
something (can't remember it did last time i tried).

Thanks for your time !
