DreamWeb - No speech 

I want to play DreamWeb, but there's no speech, only the music.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Hardly...missing essential information...

What version of DreamWeb did you download?
(I don't know if the floppy version features the same amount of music as the CD version does, so you might try that first)

What version of ScummVM were you trying?

The Floppy version has no speech at all and the exact same music as the CD version.

I downloaded the US CD DOS version, but I hear nothing but the sound effects and audio.

The version of Scumm I'm using is the May 2016 update.

ethana945: In terms of missing information, what Operating System you are using?

Also, "May 2016" is not that clear. The exact version of ScummVM is visible on the game launcher list page just above or below the logo. Can you provide this? e.g.
http://wiki.scummvm.org/images/2/2b/Emptyscummvm.png

We don't ask just to be difficult, it is just that without detail it is hard to know what the issue is and whether it is a bug which has already been fixed. See the following for future reference:

I have just tested with Dreamweb US CD Version from here:
https://www.scummvm.org/games/#dreamweb

This was on Linux x86_64 with the latest git version i.e.
ScummVM 1.10.0git1954-g1948b62-dirty (Jan 30 2017 02:52:15)

This has no issue with Speech which is read through out the Intro...

Apart from this, I would suggest testing with the latest v1.9.0 stable release which was released in October 2016:
https://www.scummvm.org/downloads/#stable

If this still exhibits the issue, then try the latest daily development build:

Okay, the speech works fine from the new update.

BTW, are both the US and UK downloads the same? I heard they censored it sometime afterwards.

There are differences between the US and UK datafiles hence why we host both. I think most of the differences are due to minor differences in spelling orthography between UK and US English i.e. color vs. colour etc.

You are right that some later releases were modified to censor some nudity: http://www.hardcoregaming101.net/dreamweb/dreamweb.htm

You would need to play the US version against the UK version to see if there is a difference in scene where he barges in his first target, David Crane's hotel room.
