So like i've left kodi for 1 hour, when i get back at it, I can hear the navigation sound, but no screen reader
If this the Pi 1, I don't really recommend it for use with the screen reader (or for Kodi in general for that matter). In any case, you should have the screen reader use an external player or have the speech program output directly, rather that have it use the default Kodi PlaySFX method. That seems to have helped this sort of thing in the past.
This is a pi 2 actually. I'm new to this so I have no idea, what do you mean by the screen reader being used on an external player?
Currently i hear espeak from my tv speakers, as same as kodi's output.
In Kodi go to System:Settings:Add-ons:My add-ons:Services and click on Kodi Screen Reader. From there click on Configure. You will get a settings dialog. Select 'Default TTS Engine' and choose eSpeak. Change 'Play Speech Directly Via eSpeak' to Yes.
To make these settings more accessible, you can go the the Keymap section in these settings and select 'Install Default Keymap'. Once you've done that, you will be able to access these settings by pressing F6.
