It is a feature of the browser.  What browser are you using?

In what way does it not work?

Does the feature detection test pass?

if ('speechSynthesis' in window) {
 // Synthesis support. Make your web apps talk!

If you use the browser to visit html5test.com does the "Speech
Synthesis" item have a "Yes ✓"?
