    FileMaker 12 speak step not working

    Ed

      Summary

      FileMaker 12 speak step not working

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      OSX Lion

      Description of the issue

      FileMaker 11 (.fp7) file was converted to FM12 (.fmp12) file. Speak steps work fine in FM11 ("Wait for speech completion before continuing" is NOT checked), but do not work at all in FM12. When the "Wait for speech completion" checkbox is checked, the speech does work.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      In FMP12, create a script with a Speak step, uncheck the "Wait for speech completion" box, save and run.

      Expected result

      Speech should be heard (...and YES, I know this only works on Mac).

      Actual result

      No speech is heard (unless "Wait for speech completion" box is checked).

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      (There are no error messages)

      Workaround

      Check the "Wait for speech completion" checkbox in the Speak script step.
