Today I went to my bank’s website and saw a message I’ve never seen before in Firefox saying “You can’t use speech synthesis because the Speech Dispatcher library is missing.”
I already had speech-dispatcher installed via apt, but apparently it’s not also in the snap (or there’s no connector to the apt version).
I see the upstream bug was marked Resolved + Fixed on June 23rd.
What else do I need to do on my system to activate speech synthesis in the snap version of Firefox so I can learn what my bank wants to “tell” me?
EDIT: I finally read to the bottom of the page linked from the Firefox message and it says I need Speech Dispatcher 0.11.4.
$ spd-say -v

On this particular machine I’m running Ubuntu 22.04, so I’ll try it on a newer Ubuntu and see what happens
