Server 10, Client 11 on Mac 10.7: I have a script that speaks a dialogue aloud. With no pattern that I can identify, sometimes it speaks and sometimes it doesent. Has anyone got any thoughts as to why this might be happening?
Let's assume the server version is irrelevant. So FMP 11 on Mac with Lion. Same machine? Same dialogue? You could try a speak step in the startup script to see if it is session specific.
I noticed that voices with dialects take several seconds to load initially. If you do not check "Wait for speech completion…", the script can terminate beforehand.
Is the text being spoken by FileMaker's Speak script step, or is it being done by the OS accessibility text to speach functions?
(Apologies for the slow response - I have been away!)
It is a script step. It is a simple 'double-check' to prevent an irreversable action - the script both displays and reads aloud the record name so that the user is clear which record they are acting on.
The issue is totally intermittant - sometimes it reads, sometimes it doesent. The script is used repeatedly, in quick sucession, as the user works though a series of records. Sometimes FM reads, sometimes it is silent. I cant work out why!
How about the "Wait for completion" - checked or not?
