0009577: Speaker in compositions don't use any skill
Characters performing the Speaker parts of compositions universally get panned, regardless of the quality of the lyrics and the Speaker's experience in Speaker, Singing, Music and the Music and Poetry forms the composition uses. The performer also gains no experience in any of those skills and forms.
Perform the Speaker role of any musical composition that features one.
No tags attached.

I'm experiencing this in a SDL 43.04 version install with a fixed executable from http://www.bay12forums.com/smf/index.php?topic=158868.msg7056178#msg7056178 [^]

Speaker and music related skills do not increase when performing related tasks.

I can confirm this is still a problem in 44.05. No descriptions of how the lyrics are spoken appear, and no experience in the musical form is gained.
