Does tdsr talk at log in or no?

I guess it does require that you have something already speaking, since blind terminal input can go wrong when you can't verify the output, but if you start from the MATE-compiz or Workstation live media, you will have something speaking and can just mount the hard drive where you installed the OS and get tdsr speaking from there. And I did manage to get tdsr speaking on a text-only tty while my desktop was already running, and I in fact had tdsr running in the terminal on the desktop at the same time, although they were not both speaking, so it looks like pipewire has matured enough to be effective now, and it seems to have fixed the problem where graphical and text consoles couldn't play sound at the same time. I also just tried playing an audio file in the text console while composing this message on the graphical console where my desktop is running, and the only problem I noticed is that once the file stopped playing and tdsr gave me the command prompt, I didn't hear the last word I typed echoed until tdsr was finished, but this is a feature of speech-dispatcher, not an audio bug. Hope this helps.
