Can't help you just yet with the password, but hwinfo should help with 
hardware detection.

And then I don't get any speech. I also tried the desktop icon which yielded similar results. I am useing the latest vinux. I also tried hitting control alt f1 to open a terminal which made speech go away entirely. but running terminal from the gnome accessories menu I think it is I have speech in that terminal and I'm logged in as orca.
