Hi Tony,

Sorry to hear about your troubles. Thanks for your perseverance. Speak 16
was touted as a major step forward [1][2], but does have some known issues

Are you able to tell us how you reinstalled it? Did you download an .xo file
from http://activities.sugarlabs.org?

I asked the forums if anyone had seen this problem and was recommended

Hrm. These are issues with GStreamer, the multimedia system. [4]

~/.sugar/default/logs is where activity logs are stored. There should be a
log named "org.laptop.SpeakActivity.log" or "org.sugarlabs.SpeakActivity"
 that should provide some clues as to why it's breaking.
