Speakup to Speech Dispatcher interface

The aim of the (currently unmaintained) Speechd-Up project was to give users the possibility to use the Speakup screen reader with software synthesis. It worked as an interface daemon between Speakup and Speech Dispatcher, who took care of the software synthesis.
