I have experienced this bug as well with my Mantis. Out of curiosity, just verified that the speech does also unmute with an apple bluetooth keyboard. So not specific to the Mantis. Interestingly, if speech is muted and Mantis is connected, changing the roter with the 2 finger screen gesture does not unmute speech.

Intresting. Thank you for replying! I am not noticing this on my iClever keyboard, but I will try another keyboard over the weekend and update the bug. Thanks again for the reply!

The keyboard I was testing with is an older Apple magic keyboard.
