I don't think so. This highlights what I believe to be a current problem with
how the two applications have been integrated. Speakup, as I understand it,
always tries to start. If you don't specify a device or synthesizer type then
it autoprobes. This means that Speakup will autoprobe your BrailleLite.  This
may cause problems to both Speakup and the BrailleLite. I don't think there's
currently a way to tell Speakup to simply not start at all.
