No one has any clue what is stopping it. People have contacted the pulse developers who say it's something with espeakup, but then some think it may be speech-dispatcher's crappy pulse implimentation, which may be the case, cause I think it will work if a dekstop infironment isn't loaded with orca.
No one has any clue how, or even what, to fix lol. So, I just avoid pulse.
