just for non-Debian users. Wheezy is going to be the next stable Debian
release but has not been released yet. So currently that is Debian

Links to such projects would be nice.

        Beschreibung: Source of the speakup kernel modules
         Speakup allows you to interact with applications and the GNU/Linux operating system with audible feedback from the console using a
         synthetic speech device. 

         Speakup allows you to navigate around the screen using the typical screen review functions such as say word, say line, announce cursor
         position, which console your currently on, and much, much more. It also allows one to load in configuration parameters for controlling
         various aspects of the synthesizer you are using, as well as speakup itself. 

         Currently, the following synthesizers are supported by speakup: 
         * DoubleTalk PC/LT 
         * LiteTalk 
         * Accent PC/SA 
         * Speakout 
         * Artic Transport 
         * Audapter 
         * Braille 'N Speak / Type 'N Speak 
         * Dectalk External and Express 
         * the Apollo2 

         This package provides the source code for the speakup kernel modules. Kernel source or headers are required to compile these modules. For
         basic install steps see /usr/share/doc/speakup-source/README.Debian.gz

Sorry, I do not understand what you mean by that.

So you are missing all the important information. What version of
PulseAudio do you use and what do you want to do? Do the above as the
normal user? Please give steps on how to reproduce your problem.

Then you should als provide logs which is described in the PulseAudio
Wiki [1].



PS: What is the advantage of formatting your message with such wide
