I'm not a GNOME a11y user, but I suspect that this is not a problem with 
GNOME, gnopernicus, orca, Festival, or flite.  Its a problem with ALSA.  You 
should make sure you have an up-to-date version of ALSA.  There were dmix 
issues in older versions which have been fixed in recent versions.  Make sure 
GNOME, gnopernicus, and orca are using "Default" ALSA devices, which, if ALSA 
is properly configured, should use dmx.

If GNOME, gnopernicus, and orca cannot be configured to use ALSA, ignore what 
I said above.

As a last resort, take a look at my blog here:
