hi,
to start with, you should use emacspeak 12 as it's the latest version.

yes, it should speak.

note: c- means control and m- or meta means alt.  when you see c-h it means control h.

when you type c-h c-e you are placed in a buffer which contains text
describing emacspeak.  you should be able to use your up and down
arrows to navigate the text.  to read the entire buffer use c-e n

if you can more completely describe what is happening we may be able to track down the problem.  when is the dectalk speaking?  what is it speaking etc.

another key sequence that is your friend is c-e c-s which will restart
the speech synth if it gets itself in knot.
