Speech synths like espeak require OSS emulation support to be able to detect and use the /dev/dsp device that many other accessability based audio applications require to be usable.
By default this device is not viewable because Alsa is not configured to emulate oss devices by default.
This can be fixed by simply configuring ALLSA to emulate OSS devices and the loading the correct modules on boot:
This is currently blocking my attempts to help the screen reader project.
