With the 0.6.6 version of Speech Dispatcher, you must make
sure that all of the loaded output modules (see AddModule
in speechd.conf) specify AudioOutputMethod as "pulse"
in their .conf files. With 0.6.7 the setting is centralized in one
option of the same name in speechd.conf.

Try to run pulse audio as

pulseaudio -vvvvv

in the terminal and examine the output to learn more about why
the paplay can't access it. Or send it to us and we might have
a look:

pulseaudio -vvvvv 2&> pulse.log

Please note however, that the current versions of Pulse Audio still
seem to not be able to reach the performance available with ALSA
and you will likely still find the responsiveness to be slower even with
latest versions of everything if you use Pulse Audio.
