Default Google Maps/TTS Issue not speaking street names

I've done a lot of searching for a solution for this problem. Google maps doesn't read street names. It has nothing to do with the time of day as suggested by other threads. Also, clearing the data/cache and rebooting doesn't solve the issue for me. Changing to Ivonna or another engine does nothing. Maps insists on using the faulty google tts.

I have seen this behavior on Sense 6 Roms including Viper and the ATT Debloated with integrated voicemail into messages.

The problem appears to involve Google TTS because whenever I go into setting/language & keyboard/text to speech I see that the system is stuck on "checking default"

Skydragon Sense 6 on the other hand works fine.

I've been trying to see what the difference is without coming up with a solution.
Have others seen this?

Any fixes?

What language are you trying to use? All but english french and spanish were removed from the one i put out for users...This would explain why no sound with streets if using another with english here with no issues....
