Three users have reported an issue where their Samsung devices have updated to Android 13 and the google text to speech engine is muted for doing player announcements.  If you switch the text to speech engine to the Samsung engine, the announcements work, but the voice selection and quality is limited.  I have a galaxy tab s8 on order that should arrive on November 23rd.  Hopefully, it will update to android 13 and I can debug this issue to see if there is some setting or workaround that can get the google engine working again.

This issue is now fixed with Android version 2.5.29 that should be available on the Play store as of 11/29/22. 

Thanks to those who reported the issue and their patience while I obtained an Samsung device with the Android 13 update that could reproduce the issue.
