I recently decided to try out standard ArchLinux in a VM, because I have an old pc which I'm considering installing some flavor of Linux on. However, after installing Arch and restarting, speakup doesn't start after bootup and I get beeps when I try to type in a command.

Did you install using the TalkingArch image?
Did you install all extra packages, alsa-utils, espeakup, etc?
Did you save the ALSA state to /var/lib/alsa/asound.state before restarting?
HTH.

Yes, I used the talking arch image. I think I saved the sound state but I'm not quite sure. I did use StormDragon's arch vm creation script, which does that automatically (I think).
