While I do use straight for other packages, I don't use it for Emacspeak.
Using straight for emacspeak really just adds additional complications that
don't add any benefit and are simply not worth the hassle.
Straight is a great system and I prefer it over package.el. However, as I
know I always want Emacspeak installed and as it is trivial to do git pull
to update, followed by make clean, make config and make, using straight
doesn't help. I have a couple of packages where I don't use straight -
typically ones which also involve other binaries and not just *.el/*.elc
files e.g. mu and mu4e for example.

What version of Emacspeak? Did you remember to compile it first, as per
instructions? Here's a minimal config, assuming one was using a
pre-compiled 53.0 installation from the Debian Stable APT repository
(not recommended by the way, you DO want the latest features, right? 😎).
(unless (file-exists-p bootstrap-file)
(load bootstrap-file nil 'nomessage))
