tshell used to be part of the eterm package
and once upon a time you had to pull eterm and install it
separately.
After emacs 19.29 eterm was integrated into emacs as term.el
--but the maintainers of emacs chose not to include
tshell.el  which went with term.el in the eterm package.

For what you are trying to do,
simply launch term as 
M-x term
-- rather than using the emacspeak shortcut c-e c-r
and all should be well.

above statement "telnet to a bash shell" doesn't quite make
sense.  What you are doing makes sense only if you intend to
telnet into another machine or run programs that need a
terminal like vi if all you want is a bash shell for doing
ls and such just use M-x shell
