Why should 'speakup' be selected by default at all? I would expect 'standard' 
to be selected as the default by d-i.

I noticed only after submitting this bugreport that speakup is a keyboard 
variant after you choose query - US American - standard (not USB).
The options presented are: speakup, standard, US international (ISO-8859-1), 
US international (ISO-8859-15), with Latin1.

I think it is great that Debian supports extensions for blind people, but I 
would not want them selected by default for my systems.
If they are selected by default I would again have error messages if I compile 
my own kernel without speakup support.
So please make 'standard' the default selection for d-i.
