I'd be interested if you could tell me exactly what files you used for
redhat.  I know exactly what it takes for Debian, since that's what I use
(you can just do an apt-get install of one of the voices -- if you apt get
install, it won't install a voice).

Run speechd w/ a -f (foreground), & please paste the output to a responce

My monitor is on a table by my bed.  My keyboard is on my bed.  My mouse
is on a book on my bed.  When I'm in IRC running speechd & speech.irc, it
can be very difficult for me to stop talking to people & go to sleep.  I'm
sorry.  Yeah, I could just do /speechoff, but... I'm an adict.
