Just a shot in the dark, which shouldn't make any difference, but try
this template, which works for me:

#+BEGIN_SRC elisp
("t" "Task" entry
      (file "")
      "* TODO %^{Description}    %^G

%U %?" :clock-in t :clock-resume t)

You might also try replacing %^{Todo} with %^{Description}, just for fun.

That backtrace doesn't seem helpful to me either.  Maybe Nick's advice
will help here.  :)

Hard to say without testing.  If nothing else works, try using the
bug-hunter package from MELPA to bisect your config, keeping the
template unchanged (i.e. you could eval the template manually when
testing).  If there is something in your config causing it, this should
narrow it down for you.

That definitely makes it much more challenging.  I'm sorry I can't be
much help here, as I know nothing about emacspeak.

If it's not too time-consuming, that'd be a good idea too.

Also, sorry if you already mentioned this, but you might try using a
newer version of Org if possible.
