Absolutely no reason to build kernels. The trick is to be sure and get
the staging kernel modules to match the Fedora kernel package, because
Speakup is included there.

So, you do not want to update your Fedora kernel unless the kmod-staging
rpm is available for that same kernel version.

The easiest way is:

yum update kmod-staging

as it will pull in the required kernel if it exists, and ignore it if it

The latest, as of this writing, is:

Summary     : Metapackage which tracks in staging kernel module for
newest kernel
Description :
This is a meta-package without payload which sole purpose is to require
staging kernel module(s) for the newest kernel.
to make sure you get it together with a new kernel.
