Hi folks,
Realizing it may be  solved by now, I did promise to ask another user.
His thoughts are below,  if the person is still having issues let me know now 
as  he has  offered to help  them troubleshoot given he has used his own 
unit  with Linux for some time.

Ahh, yes, depending on which artic synthesizer he has, he may need to run a 
program, or set it to synthesizer mode.  If it's a spirit, nothing needs to be 
done, it should just work.  If it's a transtype, there is an option in the 
menus to set it to speech mode, though that's the one where you can also run 
the terminal program, and it will talk that way too, though not as readily or 
as well as the synthewsizer mode will allow.  If it's a transport, just setting 
the linux side of things to 9600 8, n, 1 should take care of the problem, as 
that is the default settings on the transport.
I think that covers all the possible options.  If there are further issues, 
feel free to pass my email address on to the individual having trouble.

Again, hope this helps.
