See the documentation for dtk-pause --you need to use C-u to
  force previously paused speech to flush.
Now that messages pause speech automatically, 
you have to do this since there may be paused speech that
  you dont know of --especially true after emacs startup.

I dont use vm in that mode i.e. using the summary buffer to
  navigate a folder, which is probably why it doesn't work.

Given that emacspeak produces intelligent spoken summaries
of the message as you move to it with 'n' and 'p' the
summary buffer is just too inconvenient.
