You need a speech server, because Emacspeak does not directly control the
TTS engine, but rather sends the text, which should be spoken to the speech
server, which then controls the TTS engine. More technically, the speech
server gets started as a background process, when Emacs starts off and
receives the text via stdin and sends it to the speech synthesizer.
