The OpenElec guys were kind enough to include eSpeak in support of this addon because OpenElec doesn't have a way to install new software packages.

On a Debian based installation, you need to install the speech engine yourself so

Code:
sudo apt-get espeak

in a terminal for example.

I am going to stay with openelec then.
keep me posted on how it comes, because I really like this Haddon a lot.
I helps me use open elec a lot easier.
How come some of the items in the settings are not spoken like some the descriptions of the setting for koi?

I am unable to access all the text when browsing the settings, but perhaps in the future I will find some workaround. Also, there is still more work to be done in the addon, so there may be portions of Kodi without speech or where speech is incomplete.

what does the change mean?
do you still need the repo to install it or is it on the koi repo now?

Means it is now in the official Repo, No longer need to load a 3rd party Repo.

To install goto,
All Addons - Services - Kodi Screen Reader

Of course if you wish to use NVDA you need to load the NVDA Controller Client DLL and for that you still need to add Ruuk's repo. This only applies if you use windows and wish to use NVDA as your speech engine for Kodi.

That is nice.
I have pi 2 so I no longer need the repo cool.
this also makes easier to re install it as well!!!
