Reader X: Read Out Loud function not working; no voice output

Feb 22, 2011 2:11 PM

I was using this function in the Reader 9.4 but the voice got the text a bit garbled at times, so I thought I'd try the latest version of the Reader and see if the passage was less garbled.  Reader X has no voice output at all, even after setting and confirming accessability config.  I messed with all 3 options of text buffering.  I know the pdf file I'm viewing is ocr not image (at least Reader 9.4 could read it w/ a bit of it being garbled).  Not sure what else to try; Text Aloud voices still work in that application.

    May I Recommend that you try turning off the protection mode.
    Edit > Preferences
    Choose "General" from the Categories on the Left
    and at the bottom of the form you will find "[ ] Enable Protected Mode at startup"
    Uncheck it and
    Restart the program.
    I didn't have the same problem you had until I install a new voice, then I had the same problem. and this seemed to do the trick.
    Best of luck.
