Up until Yosemite I have always had a text to speech service menu option and have been able to readily use a command key combination to trigger the reading of selected text in just about any application.
System Preferences -> Keyboard -> Services, looking under the Text subsection, there is nothing there to enable for text-to-speech. Further,
System Preferences -> Dictation & Speech -> Text to Speech has "Speak selected text when the key is pressed" enabled and a key combination set and this key command simply doesn't work (and yes, even when I change this to another set of keys).
Neither of these have functioned properly for me since my initial usage of Yosemite this past summer and I am curious as to whether others have found a solution.
- Know how one can make TTS appear in the service menu again and
- Have you figured out a way to make the key combination work reliably in applications?
