additional note-- the cowriter speak option works if I highlight the text and right click and select cowriter -speak, so is not an issue with audio, is with the text to speech within Bookshare webreader.   ?????

We do find sometimes other extensions can conflict with our own built in text to speech.  Can you try temporarily disabling the cowriter extension, and any other extension you have installed except for the Chrome English US TTS extension on the device by going to chrome://extensions to see if that resolves the issue?  

Note that you also do need to have that Chrome TTS extension installed for audio to function correctly, if you do not have it installed please add it from: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/chrome-os-us-english-fema/efdojdlmjknacnljjdedapanceanigkh
