Hi vasttheophile,

Thank you for the information.

Based on the pop-up message Chrome has blocked access to the microphone on that specific website. You have to allow the site to access the mic for the speak the words to work. You can read more about allowing the mic here.

Here are a few things you need to remember:

  1.  Speak the Words is only supported in Chrome
  2. Your site needs to be https not just http
  3. And you have to accept usage of the microphone

Let us know if you still are having problems.
