Text to Speech object not loading

May 23, 2018

Hi y'all,


I'm trying to use the text to speech object but every time I select it I get this error message:



Has anyone else experienced this? Happens every time I try. Have never successfully gotten the text to speech object to load. Oh, and even though it says it might close it never does.

Hey Mark,

Sorry to hear that this feature is giving you a hard time.

You mention that you have never gotten it to successfully load, but is that across all projects or just the one you are currently working on?

If you cannot re-create the issue in a new course, I would advise to import the file into a new one and proceed.

If it's happening in any/all files, you should certainly conduct a repair of your software.

Hey Leslie,


No it has never worked for me with any project. I tried with a new blank blank project with no other programs running. I restarted my machine. My copy of Storyline was updated last week to version 3.15.15581.0


There is no lag or timeout when I hit the text-to-speech button. That error box appears immediately. Attached is the xml error report that gets generated when the error box appears.

I will try the repair next and update with my experience.
