Running Speakup on Ubuntu

Is anyone able to get speakup running on anUbuntu installation (or live CD) which has the default orca  screen-reader option enabled - in other words - which has Orca running and Pulseaudio running in user mode? Or even on a plain Ubuntu without Orca enabled - I have been trying to do this for a week and have not made any progress. I am not sure whether the problem is pulsaudio or speech-dispatcher or speech-up - but I suspect it maybe caused by speech-dispatcher as I am able to run pulseaudio and speech-up without any error messages. But I get an error about speech-dispatcher being disabled if I try to start that in a console. Speech-dispatcher seems to be set not to run in system mode by default.
