I get this error "Running the 'googletts' (Google Cloud Text-to-Speech) service failed: 'profile' attribute is required." when I try to use the text to speech, this started on 4/11/2020 after doing an update to the addon

    Sorry about that. It should be fixed now. Please use Tools - Add-ons - Check for Updates to update the add-on.

    Good Morning,

    So the fix did work, however after the most recent update 2 days ago I am unable to the “AwesomeTTS” on the drop down after right clicking. Normally, it would be part of the drop down as seen in the attached screenshot.

    I'm late to reply, but it appears the AwesomeTTS context menu won't be shown if there are no saved presets.

    If it's still actual, please use Tools - AwesomeTTS - Advanced - Manage Presets - select a speech service and save it.

    Once it's done, the AwesomeTTS context menu should be visible again.

    I would like to make the HTML text on my field between "<strike> </strike>" is not read by Awesome TTS's "On-the-Fly" mode, but I was unable to do that using "<strike>. * <. strike>" and, on the left, use a" space" or a " _ ".
    Could you help me with that?

    I pushed a new commit to apply custom rules before converting html to text and updated the add-on. It should work now.

    In addition, _ probably can be replaced with nothing, i.e. removed, and if you have more than one <strike>...</strike>, replace greedy regex .* with non-greedy version .*?
