Thanks for your suggestions. I tried that and it didn't turn out to be
the problem, however, it did prevent me from having to change hdmi to
internal speakers and listed the speakers as the first device in sound
prefs so it is a great help. I did find a solution to my problem. In the
Orca preferences by changing the option from default speech synthesizer
to espeak-ng on the Voice tab things work properly. I think that for
some reason, on my hardware, no speech synthesizer is selected by
default. Can you reproduce this with a fresh install on your hardware?
