two things:

1: make sure you have write permissions to the port where your dectalk
sits.

2: there is a bug in the emacspeak 9.0 distribution which causes the
DTK_PORT and DTK_OS environment variables to be ignored. raman posted
a patch which you should be able to find ont the archives to this
list. (Although this bug causes emacspeak to be unuseable if you are
not using /dev/ttyS0 for your dectalk, raman has stated that
he will not make another distribution to fix this problem.)

hth,
--will
