Description: speech-dispatcher is compiled without libao support. Alsa support in speech-dispatcher is better with libao than with the direct alsa plugin.

Additional info:
* package version(s): 0.8.4-2
* config and/or log files etc.
Set in sd config file: AudioOutputMethod "libao"
Log: speechd: Error: Module reported error in request from speechd (code 3xx): 300-Opening sound device failed. Reason: Cannot open plugin libao. error: file not found.

See the discussion about alsa plugin not well maintained here:

Steps to reproduce:
