In all fairness, there's several similar sounding things that work
together in this realm, so getting bits confused isn't hard.

As I understand it:
speakup is a Linux Kernel module that provides text-mode screen
reading functionality at the system level.
espeak is a widely used opensource, cross-platform speech synthesizer
used by several screen readers, including Orca and NVDA.
espeakup is the userland application that serves as abridge between
speakup and espeak.
