Aha, the magic piece of info you haven't previously provided,
Kristoffer! At least, I don't recall you ever telling us you're trying
to run speech over jack.

Don't do that. Reserve jack for your high end audio devices where you
use Audacity, or software like that. Jack doesn't belong on the device
that's driving your screen reader's speech.

Take jack out, and I'll bet your problems will evaporate.
