Potential conflict between emacspeak with hardware synth and Orca

1) Are you running Emacspeak at the console or under X?
If doing the latter, things are well-night impossible because
orca does not fall silent when emacs has focus.

The simplest thing to do is to run emacspeak on a virtual
console, and run ORCA under X --- switch to the virtual console
running Emacs when you want to use emacspeak. Things work in this
configuration which is how I use it.
