"/usr/bWhat" is particularly oddd

And I expected systemd to behave coherently :/

Does it fix it if in /lib/systemd/system/espeakup.service you modify 

  ExecStart=sh -c 'modprobe speakup_soft && /usr/bin/espeakup -V ${VOICE}'


  ExecStart=/usr/bin/sh -c 'modprobe speakup_soft && /usr/bin/espeakup -V ${VOICE}'
