Default Google Now Problem

T.L.D.R. VERSION: Google Now not speaking out loud. 4 year old :sadface:


Hello. Today I bought a new Nook HD for $79. My daughter has always wanted a tablet and the deal was too good to pass up, so since her birthday is coming up soon, I bought one. Problem I am having is that whenever I use voice search google now answers me, but not out loud. If I ask how tall Kobe Bryant is, it will tell me. It will show his card. It will not, however, speak out loud. This presents a problem because Isabella is 4 years old this week, she can't read! It would be awesome beyond measure if she could ask her tablet questions and get answers, but if it is only going to show cards, she won't be able to do this

I do have the option enabled in Chrome and every setting I can find pertaining to it. But it just doesn't seem to work. I am not rooted or anything, just installed Nova Prime and and using that as my launcher. Aside from that, everything is stock.

I wish I could help. I have an HD+ with a custom ROM and it seems to work as intended. Thanks for showing me a feature I didn't know it had!

In Chrome? What about in Google Now?

GNow isn't working either. It opens chrome to display the answers. In a new tab.

Check settings in the Google Search app. There you can enable Google Now and Voice Output. I'm not sure the B&N version of android is compatible, supposedly you need android 4.1 or higher.
