In order to get this working with the new system I had to do a little
hacking in /etc/init.d/speechdup.

Specifically at top level
SPEAKUPDIR=/sys/module/speakup/parameters # Not /proc/speakup

and in load_speakup()

  echo soft > ${SPEAKUPDIR}/synth #which used to read echo sftsyn

I have no idea how, but people who want this to work for kernels
>=gentoo-sources-2.6.25-r1 need these in /etc/init.d/speechd-up,
and people who want the pre 2.6.25 need the way it is as of this morning
Which had the following at the top if it helps.

Hope this is more helpful than annoying. 
Best, 
Robert
