Sound works as user but not as root

yea fenrir is running as root (if you did not any special setup). so 
also speech-dispatcher runs as root.
if you are using pulse you need to stream the sound that is played as 
root to the user or run pulse systemwide.
an other option is using alsa.
i tried to wrote down some solutions here:[]=fenrir#no_sound_at_all

sadly this is not an fenrir but an audio configuration issue so i cannot 
work arround to it.

cheers chrys.
