Speechd-up is still the way to link software speech to speakup.
Just do an emerge speechd-up to install the packages. The default
synthesizer is espeak, and it and speech dispatcher will be installed as
dependencies of speechd-up. Once you have everything emerged, add
speech-dispatcher and speechd-up to your default runlevel.
Yes, the files that were in /proc/speakup have been moved to
I will also look into modifying the speakup ebuild to install
