Re: turning voice prompts on the older insignia narrator radio
In truly bad internet form I’m answering my own post just in case this befalls anyone else. I’m not sure if this is technically the right way to solve the issue I mentioned but it’s what worked for me. I removed the batteries from the unit that power the clock and powered it up and low and behold as if by magic it resurrected and came back to speech empowered life after which batteries could be happily inserted.
Giving credit to Mr. Ray Foret Jr. whose original unboxing the unit podcast review is what inspired me to try one last thing to fix it. If anyone knows him do tell him thanks from me.
So here’s to all who share their hard won wisdom often gained by trial through fire with us all. All’s well that ends well (smile).

Subject: turning voice prompts on the older insignia narrator radio
It’s me again with another silly talking hd radio question. Today on a lovely peaceful clear day my neighborhood does what it’s famous for as we lapsed into a power outage due to an equipment failure oh joy (laughs). As a result of this I now find that my older tabletop model insignia narrator hd radio with voice prompts has fallen silent. I’ve listened to the audio manual it came with twice over now and I know once upon a day long long ago I set this thing up out of the box but for some reason I’m stuck on stupid and can’t bring the voice prompts back to life. Can some kind soul take pity on me and walk me through how I can attempt to resurrect this thing?
I didn’t remember it being this difficult when I first got it.
Thanks bunches in advance for your help.
