It should be capital e, capital r and capital m.
Did you restart your speech-dispatcher?
I have pasted a snippet of my espeak.conf:
# -- Rate control --
# The following options are in words per minute
#the same as the -s parameter for the -s option in espeak command line tool.
# Minimum rate (-100 in speech-dispatcher)
# Normal rate (0 in speech-dispatcher)
# Maximum rate (100 in speech-dispatcher)
If it is running in user mode then you probably find the configuration files in
Do you have modules/espeak.conf there?
