This will be the pulseaudio problem again.

You can make it all work by removing pulseaudio and setting output to libao in /etc/speech-dispatcher/speechd.conf

It seems that later versions of firefox will require pulse to provide sound but, for me, it is more important to have speech in the console.

Hello all,

I just did a fresh install of debian using the internet iso image. Speakup talked durring installation but when I press control alt+F1 or another function key to bring up a console, I get no speech.  Just was wondering how to get speakup to start talking when I press control+alt+F1 to bring up a console and how to get back to gnome and Orca when I'm done?Thanks,

Sadly, it is an annoying bug! :)

I had reported the same issue a while back and the issue was already known!
The only way to use command line is to use the terminal provided by the desktop manager (Gnome, Mate ...).
