Text to speech stopped working
« on: Wednesday 2015-July-22 01:14:55 PM »
Grey Hat The Game makes use of Android's Text-to-Speech facility.

On my Nexus 7 (2012) which is running Android 5.1.1, the Text-to-Speech facility stopped working.

- tap the white 6-dot-circle button to display the list of applications

- locate the Settings cog icon, not the Google Settings cog icon. Being in alphabetical order, the 'Settings' cog icon will appear after the Google one.

- tap the Settings cog icon

- at the bottom of the Settings screen you will find: Accessibility

- tap Accessibility

- at the bottom of the Accessibility screen you will find: Text-to-speach output

-tap Text-to-speach output

- to the right of 'Google Text-to-speech engine' there is another cog, tap it

- yet another 'Settings screen', at the bottom you will find: Install void data, tap it

- locate a language and tap it

- you will be presented with male and female data download options

- tap to download one or both

After the download has completed your text to speech will hopefully start working again.
