Hi Jace,
You can install from git without removing the packaged version, but you 
will have to make sure that the correct one is started.
You cannot use both at the same time.
The git one will likely install into /usr/local, so you might need to 
tweek a few things if everything does not work the first time.
I would say the correct way would be to get the source of the sd package 
and replace the sources with those from git, then build the .deb package 
using all the package metadata from the old package.
Then install the newly created package.
What has changed in the latest speech dispatcher causing you to want to 
Regards, Willem
