FWIW, the whole KDE tts system worked for me out-of-the-box. I hadn't played 
with KSayIt, but I just tried it and it works (though I'm mystified as to 
what it's supposed to be used for). The configuration isn't obvious at all, 
but I figured it out.

What I did was:
- Install kttsd & kttsd-contrib-plugins
- Install festival and a speaker (I used festvox-rablpc16k)

- Open KControl
- Go to Regional & Accessibility -> Text-to-Speech
- Click 'Talkers' tab
- Click 'Add' button.
- The defaults ('Language: English (United States of America) / Synthesizer: 
Festival Interactive') were acceptible; I clicked 'OK'
- Click 'Apply'
- Click the 'General' tab
- Check 'Enable Text-to-Speech System (KTTSD)
- Click 'Apply'
