I have Mathematica When I execute the command


I hear nothing. In the earlier versions of the software, Mathematica would 'speak' the words/string inside the 'Speak' function. How to fix it? My computer audio system works fine.

My OS is Ubuntu 20.04 focal (x86-64) (Linux Kernel: 5.4.0-53-generic)

According to the documentation for Speak, it uses your computer's OS to generate the sound. There doesn't appear to be any issues with the command or Mathematica, so it is likely an issue with your OS. If you recently updated, it could be a bug in your OS version. If you don't have the most recent updates, you could try updating your computer to see if that fixes your OS issue.
