The handling of the PC speaker was changed a while ago; you may need to load a
module or play with Alsa settings via amixer. It's possible that your
virtualization environment doesn't emulate the PC speaker device at all. A
quick Web search should help here.

Pcspkr used to be the required kernel module, but as I recall, this has changed now.

Do you experience any of the same issues when running Linux and Emacspeak
directly on hardware without virtualization involved?
