Hello Bram and list,
I don't have your message to hand, but I seem to remember that you're
using the ibmtts synthesiser. I use this via voxin, and I believe
somewhere on the voxin web site it mentions that this synthesiser has
to use the sound devices exclusively. So it's a voxin problem, if it
can be seen as such.

Are you using espeak with gnomespeech?
It seems that espeak wasn't compield with alsa support.
Install alsa-oss and edit /usr/bin/espeak-synthesis-driver.
There you need to add aoss before /usr/bin/espeak-synthesis-drvier.bin
Caution! I think we talk about Intrepid and there is Pulseaudio
installed too. So there should be no need for alsa-oss, but one should
deactivate Pulseaudio in order to use Alsa as standard sound device.
Yes, I'm using intrepid with alsa becouse work's better with speech
dispatcher and I've deactivated pulseaudio.
I haven't any system sounds either. Yesterday I set up a bunch of sounds
for low battery alert and various events, but they aren't playing. I
searched for some bug reports, and found some things about a grayed out
sound configuration screen, but that's not the case here. I'm able to
preview the sounds and using PulseAudio, I'm able to use espeak/orca,
music and other things just fine. So, the sound setup seems to be ok,
however no gnome sound events are playing. Did someone already file a
bug report for this? With the final version of Ubuntu 8.10 coming quite
soon, these things shouldn't happen anymore.
