This might be a simple question: Whenever I open any config or CLI I the application is trying to convert anything in the command line to speech.
I have a mac and my terminal and any other command-line application don't do this; just the packet tracer. I tried to look for any obvious options in the preferences of the packet tracer application but can't find any.
I am running packet tracer 8 on macOS Big Sur.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I think I figured it out:
1) Navigate to the applications top menu and click on "Cisco Packet Tracer" > Services > "Services Preferences"
a) On the left make sure "Services" is selected and right scroll down until you see the "Text" section and uncheck "Add to Music as a Spoken Track"
b) Save your Cisco Packet Tracer (any work you have done); exit out of application and relaunch.
TADAAA!!! it worked for me so I hope this helps you. Sad there isn't good documentation for this. (which itself is very annoying).
This post is an addition to my previous one. Unfortunately the fix didn't last and the text to speech came back after a couple of days. The current "solution" is to copy Packet Tracer from a Mac that isn't affected, in my case this was a 2013 13" MacBook Pro to my M1 MacBook Pro. It's a clunky solution and I know it wont't be applicable to everyone but it has worked so far.
