You shouldn't have to mess with rc.local to have espeakup started at
boot (rc.local is executed at the end of the boot sequence).

After a reboot and with no rc.local file present What is the output of
the following command:

$ systemctl status espeakup

In other words: espeakup should speak during and after the boot process
without needing to do anything in particular.

I also echo the sentiment expressed in this thread regarding the
outstanding work of the accessibility folks.
