    Test to Speech, no sound


    New to this, I'm having an issues with my Text-to-Speech. When I go to the text-to-speech, or use any application which makes use of test-to-speech, the computer will show that its is reading, but no sound comes out. The text word are highlighted as it is reading it, but no voice is playing. I check everywhere for help, I'm trying to use this for school due to very bad eyes. Does anyone have a solution for this, thanks.

    While using my iPhone today I thought maybe a Bluetooth wouldbypass the drivers, when and got myself an Asus USB-BT211 Bluetooth 2.1 MiniDongle at the store and using my Bluetooth speaker I can hear with it. My IVONA reader, speak in Microsoft Word andExcel is working now. Just somethingabout Window 8 drivers, I have an IDT High Definition Audio CODEC, AMD A8-3820APU with Radeon HD Graphics. This is my temporaryfix for me, just looking for a permanent fix.
