I now realize the plugin per se works. What doesn't work is the system-wide keyboard shortcut (as configured in
Preferences › Speech.)
As a workaround, I considered going the extra mile and tried duplicating my shortcut in Sublime in
Key Bindings, something like:
…unfortunately, the key I want to use (the backtick) is not supported by Sublime (but is very convenient when switching between multiple languages all the time.)
Any chance to hear from the lead developers on this, and to get support for the OS's TTS?
I'm a coder, writer and linguist / constant language-learner, and I'd like to be able to keep using Sublime Text for taking notes. Until this is fixed, I'm condemned to using Google Doc.
