Hello Nolan,

I highly doubt that the chain including gnome-speech could work better
than interfacing Orca to Speech Dispatcher directly, using Tomas' patch:

eSpeak has been under heavy developement in the last months and it is
growing to be a very powerful synthesizer with a lot of features. I can
for instance say that to my knowledge, support for nearly all the
features defined in the TTS API discussion has been included recently.
This might be the cause of your troubles with the volume range, please
apologize, but it definitely is worth it.

Please do.

Thank you,
