Hi Don,
 
My best guess is that somehow the Classic scheme has been modified   to play a sound instead of speak.  If it had been modified it would read as Classic modified unless something weird happened and we all know nothing weird ever happens with computers don't we!  LOL 
 
Because the sound won't play when running with the default settings is further proof that it's a setting that has been changed and the first place I would look is in the settings of the scheme you're running.

Stay safe and take care.  Mike.
