I'll attach my .asoundrc file, as it was the one I was working with at
the time.  Here is more explanation.

In this sentence, with character echo turned off, but word echo turned
on, I can type fast enough that the speech is about one word behind.
There 2 instances of each word spoken, almost.  Almost comes out as 

almo almost

with a slight pause in between the utterances.  

In the .asoundrc file, without the patch applied, if point is on the
first line and I use C-n to scroll down to line 20 to 25 it takes about
4 seconds for the speech to catch up and the line to be spoken.  With
the parch applied it takes about 8 seconds.

I can try it, see what happens, and report back.

The issue was there before, just not as much as with the parch.
