[Grml] Accessibility: espeakup and ALSA

I seem to have a memory of a message saying that ALSA sound support in 
the medium ISO is being considered for removal, although I cannot find 
the message. Now as accessibility is being put in the medium ISO, the 
problem is that espeakup and espeak rely on working sound support to be 
of any use (as mentioned in the festival TTS documentation sound output 
is desirable, although having no sound card does mean less defects will 
be heard).

I just thought I would bring this point to the attention of the 
developers, as there is no point in including espeakup and espeak unless 
sound support is there.
