It isn't GNOME speech that interfears with esd, but the software 
synthesizer that you are using. If you are using Festival, it is 
possible to make Festival cooperate with esd, however speech cannot be 
shut up when you need it to, and the speech overlaps, due to a bad 
buffering/festival esd client access problem. I am only guessing as to 
what the problem is exactly.

I would suggest turning off system sounds in GNOME, thereby preventing 
esd from loading. It will save you more headaches in the future.
