I will be testing this patch myself today, and will integrate it if things appear to be favourable, and by

As an initial patch, it certainly works very well. No break up of audio being sent to pulse, and generally ok 
responsiveness. However, when reviewing lines of text in the terminal for example, it doesn't stop speaking 
the previous text and speak the new text quickly enough for my taste, and flushing speech by pressing control 
takes a bit too long too.

I also experienced the issues others have reported with reviewing individual letters, and letters not being 
spoken. I think its buffering related, and libao doesn't play the buffer unless there is a minum amount of 
audio to be played.

Anyway, with further tweaking, I hope we can get this to a usable solution for speech-dispatcher.
