Solution 1 :
Although probably not the best answer (or maybe just a glitch on Androids part) add the following code just above the
<application in your manifest.
<queries> <intent> <action android_name="android.intent.action.TTS_SERVICE" /> </intent> </queries> <application android_allowBackup="false"
After adding this code my TTS service started to work again, but I do get a warning from the manifest file about it not being allowed there, but anywhere in the manifest gives this same warning so I suppress it with
<!--suppress AndroidElementNotAllowed --> just above the
<manifest tag at the top.
Solution 2 :
@jayce‘s answer helps if app is targeting the Android 11
Note: sorry for the noise but I don’t have enough reputation to put my comment there.
Up to API 29 tts is working fine on android to speak out any text
But on API 30 tts is not working anymore and i do not know why
The google documentation says :
“Apps targeting Android 11 that use text-to-speech should declare TextToSpeech.Engine#INTENT_ACTION_TTS_SERVICE in the elements of their manifest”
I do not exactly know what they mean and how to implement this in the manifest.
I hope anybody can help me with this.

He Jayce thank you so far for your solution. I will check this out. Hopefully we will get a better solution soon . The Google documentation is really poor without any explanation
