Now that 1.3 is out, espeak-ng is a required dependency for TTS.

Steps to reproduce:
Install only speech-dispatcher and mumble and join some server/switch rooms/send a message - you will hear no TTS.
Install espeak-ng too and TTS will work.
This task depends upon

speech-dispatcher has espeak-ng and festival as optdeps for speech synthesis -- you have to pick one to install. I don't see espeak mentioned in the 1.3.0 release notes.

You're right, I jumbled things together in my head, you need speech-dispatcher and either espeak-ng or festival+festival-english.

I still think adding those to optdepends would reduce confusion as to why TTS doesn't work out of the box, as it's not immediately obvious that speech-dispatcher requires further configuration.

EDIT: I'm having a very slow morning, I can't get festival to work with Mumble, I was actually using espeak-ng on accident for both while testing

This is now suggested in 1.3.0-2 as additional opt-deps.
