It works with the first 3 voices that are offline (David, Mark, Zira) but the rest of the voices which are Online are having problems.

I can select them and the Read Aloud animation starts playing but there is no sound.

for example I tried Read Aloud right now in this page and selected Hazel online UK both in Immersive reader mode and normal mode, but no sound at all, I even wait 1 minute for it to start.

 

it's been like this for a couple of weeks actually but right now that I'm reporting Edge is Version 80.0.320.0 (Official build) canary (64-bit)

Windows 10 insider build 19013

I have no other sound problem in Windows nor in any websites.

I am having the exact same issue with recent builds but what I found is that the same Edge version on the same version of Windows works with the online voices on my Surface Pro tablet but not my desktop. Like you, on my desktop, only the office voice work and my symptoms are as described.

Hi,
sorry for the late reply,
it's fixed for me in today's update
Edge insider canary version 80.0.327.0

I received 80.0.328.4 recently and it still does not work for me. Zira continues to work but when I switch to Jessa or any other online natural voice, the UI pauses the word by word follow along and the voice stops. I switch back to Zira and it picks up where it left off. Odd thing is that this same browser version works fine on a second PC and my Surface Pro and at one point worked fine on the PC it no longer works on as well.

Yeah it's the same for me, on one build it works and the next update breaks it.

Same exact issue happening to me right now on new release Edge: Version 79.0.309.71 (Official build) (64-bit)

:(

I'm not even sure whether it's server side or client side :\
