Try cranking the speech volume pot on the S&T board back and forth a few times to clean it.

Yes. It runs for a minute or so, no speech, at the end it plays 3 different sounds only

Not an expert but those caps look like originals. I have had many get fixed with new caps and pots.

as suggested, a replacement of all electrolytic caps and pots would be my first step, but did it work?

how many flashes are you seeing from the LED on the S&T board upon turning on the game?
