Can anyone reproduce this:-
Debian buster updated on 19th september.
When switching from desktop to one of the consoles, speech is lost in
the console if orca is speaking at the time of changing to a command line.
1 Login to the desktop.
2 Log in to one or more consoles.
3 Switch to the desktop and get orca to speak.
4 While orca is still speaking, change to the console.
Result, Speakup appears to crash.
Note pulseaudio is not installed.
