This is related to missing locales and so espeak can't work as expected.
The issue can also be reproduced in calling directly espeak, e.g.:
espeak -v de "$(cat strasse-utf8.txt)"
The issue can be fixed if e.g. the /usr/lib/locale/en_US.utf8/LC_CTYPE
Here for the test, I just copied my LC_CTYPE file from my desktop to my
OM2008.8 rootfs, but the clean way might be to install the correct package.
