    Default Text-to-speech settings anyone know how to set up?

    Does anyone know how to set this up or make it work? Itís supposed to read your incoming text I believe.

    I am not talking about the little mic on the key board, thatís speech to text. I am looking for text to speech so it will read my text messages.

    I found the set-up, Settings---voice input & output--- Text-to-speech settings

    But can figure out how to make it work.
    Thanks

    Does this mean no one knows how to set up or no one cares?
    Any help on this one?
    Thanks

    I think you need to download a voice pack, like TTS which is free, or something like Ivona, which has better voices, but costs a bit.

    I know it says "text to speech", but have a hunch what they really mean is speech to text. I dunno... I'm not much of a media type guy, but I didn't think the TBolt had the text to speech capability built-in. Anyone?

    EDIT! Yes, I see now. Sorry. When you attempt to turn on the Accessibility option you are prompted to download the Google "TalkBack" app. I'm downloading it now. I'll see what happens... Holy Cow... it works good. Basically a screen reader. I was also prompted to download a "preferences" application after the main app, which I did.

    Is yours just not audible? What's happening? Did you enable it after the download by going into Settings | Accessibility | Enable TalkBack (or similar)? I can't get it to actually read the SMS messages either. It will read the title of the SMS page and say "Add Text Box", but will not actually read the message. Looks like the problem is that you can't get one message to appear on the screen alone. At least I can't.
