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.
