gdm talking login is back for me in Fedora 20

As far as I can recall, I've always booted into the graphical environment.
I think I tried to kill the gnome desktop as a whole oly once, and whatever
I did was wrong and seemed to have no bearing on when I lost my talking
I regularly kill and restart Orca, and sometimes gnome-terminal or
Thunderbird, because speech commonly wipes out for reasons I have not
figured out. Again, though, there seems to be no connection between that
and losing the talking login.
The only thing I can correlate with the disappearance and later reappearance
of the talking login is that each event followed a Fedora 20 update. (I
don't think this problem occurred earlier: earlier, at least twice, there
was the problem of Speakup getting out of sync with the updates.)
I'm sorry I don't have more light to shed on this thing.

My experience has been that it isn't there consistently.
If you boot directly into the graphical environment, I do believe you will
have talking GDM.
If, however, for any reason you find it necessary to restart the desktop,
you will not have it unless you kill speech-dispatcher after shutting the
desktop down, e.g.:
systemctl stop gdm
systemctl start gdm
I'd be interested in your experience with restarts, as I believe this is a
bug that should probably be filed against gdm. It should be trivial for gdm
to check for an existing speech-dispatcher--which will be owned by another
user, so won't function for gdm. gdm should be able to manage a restart of
speech-dispatcher, however, to clear this up.
