One way to force espeak to use PortAudio is to disable PulseAudio automatic spawning by default. This used to be adding a flag to ~/.config/pulseaudio/client.conf or changing the auto-spawn setting in /etc/pulse/client.conf, but recently, PulseAudio has gained activation support via Systemd, which is what may be used in Debian these days, not entirely sure.
