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

ii speech-dispatcher-festival 0.8-7 amd64 Festival support for Speech Dispatcher
ii speech-tools 1:2.1~release-8 amd64 Edinburgh Speech Tools - user binaries
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 !
