Speak Message Only: speaks whatever text is in the message box (does not add it to the display)
Speak Label Only: speaks whatever text is in the label box (does not add it to the display)
Add message to Display: adds text in the message box to the display (doesn’t speak it)
Play Audio: plays whatever recorded message has been assigned to the button
Speak: this will speak all text that exists on the display and in the display buffer
Speak last: repeats the last thing spoken

  1. Choose Settings
  2. Choose Speech Output
  3. Check or uncheck any of the speech settings to match your current needs
