On almost all distributions (all those that do dependency tracking, which is 
almost all, with the notable exception of Slackware), if you upgrade Qt 
TextToSpeech to a version that requires and is linked to Qt Multimedia, it 
will automatically install Qt Multimedia as a dependency if it was not 
already installed (or upgrade it to the required version if it was installed 
in an older version).
