Windows 7
- Text to speech voice skips first two words of each sentence.
I looked at the settings in the control panel >> speech properties.
Under user settings, there is a option "Number of spaces to insert after punctuation"
with the option to select 1 or 2.
When I select 1, The TTS reader skis the first word af each sentence.
When I select 2, The TTS reader skips the first 2 words of each sentence.

I don't see a 0 option, or how to not skip words.
Please help

I have attached a screen shot of Speech Properties window.


Thanks in advance

I used CLC clickspeak with firefox on my old XP PC. Clickspeak worked fine. I built a new PC with Window 7, and had problems getting clickspeak to work with firefox. I installed many different version of firefox, but still had the same problem, the TTS voice would skip the first two words of each sentence.
I have found that if I open the Simple Dictation Pad, found in the Microsoft Speech SDK 5.1; Clickspeak woks fine.

Can anyone tell me what is wrong? Is Microsoft speech 5.1 compatible with Windows 7 64 bit OS?
Am I the only one who is having problems getting Clickspeak to work with Firefox, with Windows 7 64 bit?
