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.
I'm just now bumping into the problem again. I've got choices in "preferences - reading" of 3 AT&T voices and the default MS voice. I prefer the AT&T Voices that I got from text aloud. But they don't work even if I can point to one of them via preferences. But the default MS voice works I found out, eventaully. I guess I'm OK w/ just that voice available to me rather than "enabling protected start up" and reinstalling the AT&T voices (think that's what you suggest to do). BTW, "enabling protected start up" is already set so maybe this would not work. Also not sure I have the voices on disk so... can I even reinstall them?
Thanks for the help.
