This won't help you solve your problem much, but i can tell you that
speakup's software speech won't work on the livecd. Currently the livecd
only supports the hardware synths, and doesn't support the internal
decktalk because it requires a seperate program. I just wanted to
clarify this for you. Hopefully one of the releng folks can help you
sort this.
