[Tts-project] Bug#740156: speech-dispatcher: raises pitch for every word starting with a capital

speech-dispatcher speaks every word beginning with a capital letter with raised
pitch, as if it were spelling a word. Since German capitalizes a lot of words,
it makes e.g. Orca really hard to use (because it causes headache).
I have stripped down /etc/speech-dispatcher/speechd.conf to contain just:
AddModule "espeak" "sd_espeak" "espeak.conf"
I also removed ~/.speech-dispatcher and ~/.config/speech-dispatcher.
I can reproduce this behavior both with Orca and spd-say on the command line.
E.g. using spd-say -o espeak "Hello".
