Emacspeak in .emacs VS. emacspeak script

Actraully, I doubt it. The reason I was told to have emacspeak loaded early is
to ensure defadvice definitions work correctly. The problem you are reporting
is a failure to successfully play the startup auditory icon and nothing to do
with defadvice. Personally, I disabled that option some time ago and haven't
thought about it since then. I seem to remember something about the option
being reversed i.e. defaults to off rather than on and you need to explicitly
set it, but I could be wrong. Things to check -

1. Check the value of emacspeak-play-emacspeak-startup-icon. It needs to be 't'
to have the icon played. 

2. Check that the sound file is in the correct location. 

3. Try playing the sound file to make sure it works

As there are no error messages in the messages buffer output you posted, I
doubt the problem is because emacspeak cannot find the audio file or cannot
play it for some reason. My bet is that the value ov
emacspeak-play-emacspeak-startup-icon is nil rather than t.
