Unable to select speech output device

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone!

I'm on day three of the trial, but have been unable to get any radio traffic to come out of my speakers or headset. I hear the pilot side of the transmission when I use the Say It function, but nothing from the ATC side. When I go to the Speech tab within Pilot2Atc, I'm unable to select any device for Speech Output Device. Additionally when I go to the Voices tab, those too are all blank with no options to select from. I've not installed any additional voices and when I go to Speech settings within Windows 10 the default ones provided such as Microsoft David all seem to work, so I would think I would be able to choose from one of those, but the drop down selection is blank just like the one for Speech Output Device.

All other functionality of the program appear to be working fine, including the speech recognition as I see it the radio traffic being displayed as text in the preview window. 
Thanks in advance and happy holidays!

I've uninstalled and reinstalled Pilot2Atc but the problem remains. Any thing else I should be looking at?

Read the installation manual provided regarding installation, voice all kinds of good stuff.  There is also a very good video by Captain K-man in this forum that will give you in depth knowledge about how this program works.  It can be intimidating but it is all worth it.  You will not want to fly without it.

Dave is away for the holidays.

Happy holidays.

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yeah, I've read the manual and have watched numerous YouTube tutorials. I suspect my installation is somehow screwed up, even after a reinstall because any menu setting with a drop down selection such as that Speech Output Device or Com Radio Swap Tone and the Speech Recognized Tone come up blank as shown in the attached. GXFANjS.jpg

I've also noticed that none of the changes I make within the configuration screen save upon restarting the application, such as that CoPilot Options/Changes Frequencies check mark or my path to the Xplane root wx folder. I'm running the application As Administrator but I'm not sure if that part is just a limitation of the demo or another indication of a failed installation.

Sorry to keep spamming this forum, but I think I've figured it out with the help of this post - 

I deleted the config file, letting the application rebuild it on the next start up and all appears to be well now. Just posting this in case anyone else runs into this problem.

Glad to hear you have discovered the solution.  The file you speak of is in a protected area so administration is required for installation.  I wouldn't use administration after unless you encounter a problem. I don't know anything about P3D.

Happy holidays and flying.
