TTS in hints doesn't work

I would like to pronounce the hint but only when I’m tapping on it. Unfortunately it’s beginning to play immediately after viewing the card.

{{tts pt_PT speed=0.8:Example}}

Any solutions?

There is no fine tuning of tts or audio in ANKI. General setting for automatic sound playback: Deck Options - Anki Manual

The only thing I can offer you is to play the silence audio file before the audio. Then you will have time to think before the audio prompts are played.

It could be very logical to design such feature - y tap on Hint link and the hint becoming visible and pronounced

I’m not sure whether AnkiDroid could add this feature – but I did note that in AnkiDesktop, audio and hint fields are incompatible.

It is not currently possible to use a hint field for audio — the audio will play regardless of whether you’ve clicked on the hint link. Field Replacements - Anki Manual

It seems possible that the same would go for TTS.
