Now this is interesting. I did rm -fr ./config/pulse and then rebooted the system to clear memory and played a webm file I have on vlc. Afterwards no change to speech happened at all. So it is possible what configure-pulse is writing is causing problems. This is a current version of archlinux specifically talking arch with all software updated on an x86_64 machine where all of this happened.

Subject: Re: Spd.conf ruined my speech. Please help.

I predict this will be found not to be a fenrir problem at all but a pulseaudio problem. The reason for that is I have some pulseaudio support for vlc installed on my system and had removed speech-dispatcher-git and fenrir-git from my system since speech was being slowed down here too. Whenever I use vlc to play an mp4 or webm file on this computer, afterwards the speech slows down and sounds like darth vader until I reboot the system. I could wipe out pulseaudio configuration and try playing another mp4 file to see if the same degradation happens too and probably will in a few minutes since now this has got me curious. I expect an outside possibility exists fenrir wrote some wrong stuff with pulseaudio-config and this should be a way to find that out.

Now I have British-sounding speech as well as slow speech with pitch
changes and punctuations spoken that I don't want. I really need to
use the file I was using before.
Again, help is necessary and greatly appreciated.

I ran it while trying to make fenrir work. Now everything is VERY slow
and I get weird pitch changes with caiptal letters.

Before, I was able to adjust the max rate in the
/etc/speech-dispatcher/modules/espeak.conf file. That file is still
there, but the rate settings no longer seem to apply. I can't function
with speech this slow. Please help.
