Text to speech nonfunctional in standalone

Addendum to previous
If I add a second field to accept text from the following command
(placed in the button's mouseUp handler in addition to the revSpeak
command): put whatText into field "debug"
Entire button script follows:
Put field "TextToSpeak" into whatText
put whatText into field "Debug"
In the IDE: the text entered into the first field gets spoken and
appears properly in the second field ("debug")
In the standalone: No speech, no text placed into field "debug"
What gives? Evidently there is some difference between the IDE and the
standalone that prevents the contents of the first field from being
properly captured and presented to the speech routine but also prevents
it from being passed to the second field. But I can't figure out
