[Grml] Speakup softsynth not talking with grml 1.1 installation

Hi listers,
I recently installed grml 1.1 on my hard disk and can't seem to get it 
talking through my softsynth device. I went through all the configuration 
files of speech-dispatcher and espeak but couldn't find the cause. However 
if I use the cdrom speakup talks through my hardware apollo synth as well as 
through software synth. I would like to have it talk through software synth.
Any ideas as to what I might do? I'd like to add that I'm blind and 
therefore can't read the messages coming up when the system started and I 
enter swspeak! I also entered swspeak as a start parameter on the cdrom and 
on the hard disk installation.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
