the first issue i see in your output is that the provided sox version 
does not support opus.

play FAIL formats: no handler for file extension `opus'

so you have 2 possible solutions here:
1. use the gstreamer sound driver
   1.1 open config/settings.conf
   1.2 search for section [sound]
   1.3 search for:driver=genericDriver
   1.4 change it to driver=gstreamerDriver
       this requires gstreamer installed
2. use the default-wav soundicon theme
   2.1 open config/settings.conf
   2.2 search for section [sound]
   2.3 search for:theme=default
   2.4 change it to theme=default-wav
3. install a more current "sox" version.

i dont see any other problems on that quick output. so byside this i 
assume it works but pulseaudio is not configured correct (see below):
To create an complete debug output do the following:
sudo rm /var/log/fenrir.log
cd /path/to/git/src/fenrir
sudo ./fenrir -d
ctrl + c
send me the file /var/log/fenrir.log per mail to chrys at linux-a11y dot de

if you don't hear sound or speech: you are using pulseaudio:
then you have 2 possible solutions
1. run pulse in system wide mode (not recommentet)
2. stream "root" sound to user (recommentet):
2.1 run "tools/configure_pulse.sh"
2.2 run "sudo tools/configure_pulse.sh"
in any case if you running speech-dispatcher with pulse:
you need to run "sudo spd-conf" and select pulse as output module.
then it works

if you are using also no configuration should needed since alsa does not 
sepearte different users like pulse does.
