Text to Speech app not working in emulator in android studio but works in android device

Is there some settings I have to change in the android emulator?
The app runs in the android device but doesnt run in the simulator. When I press the convert button it just doesn’t output any speech at all. I even checked if other apps give output through the speaker. Yes, youtube works perfectly fine.

package com.example.labpgm7;

import androidx.appcompat.app.AppCompatActivity;

import android.os.Bundle;
import android.speech.tts.TextToSpeech;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.Button;
import android.widget.EditText;
import android.widget.Toast;

import java.util.Locale;

public class MainActivity extends AppCompatActivity {
    EditText texttospeak;
    Button speak;
    TextToSpeech t;
    @Override
    protected void onCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
        super.onCreate(savedInstanceState);
        setContentView(R.layout.activity_main);
        texttospeak=findViewById(R.id.texttospeech);
        t=new TextToSpeech(this, new TextToSpeech.OnInitListener() {
            @Override
            public void onInit(int status)
            {

            }
        });
    }

    public void speak(View v)
    {
        String text=texttospeak.getText().toString();
        t.setPitch(1.0f);
        t.setSpeechRate(1.0f);
        t.speak(text,TextToSpeech.QUEUE_FLUSH,null);
    }
}
