"Text to Speech" is not work

  • I use Opera Next 21 (21.0.1432.48) & Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9.2). "Text to Speech" of OS X is not work on Opera. If I selected text of the webpage, Mac didn't speak the text. But Mac speak URL of the webpage. Incidentally, on other App, "Text to Speech" is work.

  • Click on the website once before making the text selection.

  • Click on the website once before making the text selection.

    I tried this way. But the selected text became not selected. And Mac didn't speak the text, and Mac Spoke the URL of website.

  • Please fix this! No speech of selected text, but the urls of some of the tabs and some headers text, weird.

  • Opera is a great browser but...
    from Opera 22 the speech to text doesn't work anymore.
    as a dyslexic person I find this a major issue, fix it please.

  • Issues is still in Opera Developer 24.0.1543.0 as of June 30th 2014, I would very much love to see this get fixed. Without it I don't see myself using Opera for much longer.

  • The issue was logged on our bug tracking system and one of the developers is already working on it.

  • Must be a serious issue...
    after months there is still no solution... 😞
    sorry but I think I just go back to Firefox or try Chromium...

  • The issue should have already been fixed in Opera 24.

    New in the upcoming Opera 25 is that you can right-click on selected text and get Speech options from the context-menu.

    I can get speech by the context-menu of Opera developer 25. But I can't get speech by the context-menu of Opera Next 24. Because "Speech" menu is not appeared on the context-menu of Opera Next 24.

    And I can't get speech by the keyboard-shortcut of Opera Dev 25 and Next 24. In this case of keyboard-shortcut, Mac don't speak the selected text. Mac speak URL of the webpage that I selected text.

    I use Opera Next 24 (24.0.1558.51) and Opera developer 25 (25.0.1614.5), and Mac OS X Mavericks (10.9.4).

    I updated from Opera Next 24 to Opera Beta 25 (25.0.1614.11). "Speech" menu is appeared on the context-menu!

    But I can't still get speech by the keyboard-shortcut of Opera Beta 25. Mac still spoke the URL of webpage by the keyboard-shortcut.

  • The issue was fixed internally already. It will arrive soon to Developer stream.

  • I could get speech by the keyboard-shortcut of Opera Stable 25 on Mac OS X 10.10 Yosemite! Thanks you so much!!
