I'm not sure this will help, but what is the value of 
default-enable-multibyte-characters?

Also, you don't mention how you start emacspeak, but it used to be that
the emacspeak script, which some people used to start emacs and
emacspeak, contained the environment variable EMACS_UNIBYTE=1.  This
might not be the case anymore.  I've not upgraded in a while so I cannot
be sure.

Here are the other settings I have in my .emacs file that pertain to
utf-8:

(setq locale-coding-system 'utf-8)
(set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8)
(set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8)
(set-selection-coding-system 'utf-8)
(prefer-coding-system 'utf-8)

Set via Customize:

 '(current-language-environment "UTF-8")

Even if this does not fix the problem, perhaps it leads you in the right
direction.
