Kurzweil 3000  V12– Spanish speaking task bar when reading voice is set to English?

While giving a lesson in information literacy in a newly updated computer lab, the Librarian was shocked to hear the words spoken in Spanish after she had dragged and dropped a paragraph into the task bar.  We checked the tools>options and English was selected as the reading and scanning language and at first thought that it was a new Kurzweil bug until a fellow tech support person said that she thought that the task bar had its own voice.

Sure enough, if you right click on the green triangle next to the Kurzweil taskbar,Kurzweil taskbar

 

select Options and
select a voice like VW Kate or Paul from the drop down menu,
English is spoken.
