Hi Robert,

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
/sys/module/speakup/parameters.

I will also look into modifying the speakup ebuild to install
documentation.
