Support » Plugin: Patreon WordPress » Patreon Blocks Text to Speech

  • I’m using the sitespeaker widget, but any text to speech worth it’s salt has a third party read the text. Unfortunately, when I lock a post under patreon-only, I also lock the site from access of third party sites needed to deliver the text to speech. Is there a work around or possible solution to this problem?

    PW doesnt prevent your site from connecting to any remote service in the background. It only locks the content from the user.

    From what you are telling, its possible that some JS or other script which is supposed to be displayed to the end user to engage the text to speech engine by contacting the 3rd party service may not be getting displayed to the user because it is hidden behind the locked content.

    If you put that JS or whatever insert you are using outside the_content, then it would display.

    That is if i understood your situation right. If not, please post a detailed topic at our support forum above.

    That would mean once you enter the password the thing would work.

    Which it doesn’t.

    I think the way the sitespeaker plugin works is that it is offsite and tries to read the page externally, but since the sitespeaker site doesn’t have Patreon access, it can’t. This is a problem only with Patreon pages, which the second I set to $0 public access, instantly goes away.

    You or your users should not have to deal with any passwords while using the plugin? Is a password popping up somewhere?

    That seems a likely analysis. You can contact the plugin’s support and confirm whether it is so, and whether they have an api or something that can be used to get around that limitation.
