Tony Baechler here.

Samuel and others can correct me, but I think even the latest kernels from 
Debian unstable don't have the Speakup serial patches yet, so yes, you would 
need my kernel image. Download the package and install it with "dpkg -i" as 
root. I guess I should set up an apt repository, but for only a few 
packages, it doesn't seem worth it. Alternatively, you could wait for the 
Speakup patches to make it into the official staging tree where they'll 
eventually be picked up by Debian and my packages won't be necessary.

You didn't say if you're running Debian testing, but if so, you should have 
a recent version of alpine. If the version in unstable is out of date, you 
should file a bug. You can join the debian-user list, but it's very high volume.
