If you run ubuntu, speakup should already be in your kernel.
At your terminal in the GUI, do sudo su
then modprobe speakup_soft start=1
You should just get back to a prompt.
Then from your console, run espeakup
If it works, you can automate all of this.
Also make sure you have sound in the console. with some versions of 
Ubuntu, you need to add the user to group audio.
