#969 Espeak for Android: application speech rate overrides system settings

I've built the latest commit (ab11439) for Android. In the @rhdunn Google Play version, the Espeak speech rate scaled the system rate, such that TalkBack could dynamically adjust the rate and rates well in excess of 450 WPM were possible. This latest build, however, forces Espeak's rate to the value set in Espeak preferences.

An option should be added to "force speaking rate to Espeak preference" to use this new behaviour (perhaps enable by default, but allow a user option for the system to control the rate as with 1.49). Failing that, the 1.49 behaviour should be restored.
