    Cannot get audio from online web dictionary


    I cannot get audio whenever I click on the button to voice dictionary words from my browser. I reformatted my computer to factory setting and still have the same issue. I've tried edge browser and google browser with no luck. I have audio when listening to music files and I also have audio when watching videos on youtube and twitch, Just no audio when I click on words in dictionaries.

    Hi thanks. The windows version is 1809.

    I just found out I get audio from the dictionary when only after plugging in headphones. And I also found out there are no audio coming from certain videos on YouTube. I've got the latest updates for drivers and read the other post as well.

    You don't want latest, you want one from your vendor.

    That worked. Everything is fine now.
    Must've been a recent update that messed it up.
    Thanks.

    You will likely need to block Windows from updating drivers as it will just be updated again.

    Option 4 this tutorial.

    Enable or Disable Driver Updates in Windows Update in Windows 10

    There is a time and place for updated drivers, and that is when we want them.

    Glad it is sorted. Please keep a copy of that driver. The next Feature update will replace all drivers and you may have to fall back, again. This will happen on all Feature updates. Of course on the positive side they very well will fix and so the new driver can be kept.
