Tony Baechler here.

You first need a kernel package with the latest Speakup patches or you won't 
have any hardware speech. You want the linux-image 4.10.7-2 package. Just 
install it with "sudo dpkg -i linux-image*". It should work fine in Ubuntu, 
but use at your own risk.

Second, you add just this single line to /etc/modules:


Finally, you make sure there aren't other modules like speakup_soft and you 
disable espeakup, speechd-up, etc from starting. You shouldn't need software 
speech. Reboot and see what happens. If it doesn't work, post here. Look at 
the dmesg output and see if it had an obvious problem. It should start 
talking early in the boot process.
