My best suggestion now is to clone RHVoice from git and try to build it
that way. First change your default Orca voice to something other than
RHVoice, as you don't want to lose speech if something goes wrong.
Uninstall the RHVoice package you installed. Now start by installing its
sudo apt-get build-dep rhvoice
I think the command to clone the git was
git clone --recursive https://github.com/rhvoice/rhvoice.git
Then you just
scons prefix="/usr" sysconfdir="/etc"
sudo scons install
You may also need to create a symbolic link that links the RHVoice
speech-dispatcher module into the right place.
ln -s "/usr/bin/sd_rhvoice" "/usr/lib/speech-dispatcher-modules/sd_rhvoice"
should do that. Restart speech-dispatcher and Orca or the computer and
you should be good to go. Upon changing Orca's voice back to RHVoice,
you should see all the voices in the person dropdown box, although you
will also need to be sure that the language is set to English.
