Hi:

I seem to be unable to do anything to slow down the PBP.  No matter what setting I try it still spits out the whole result instantaneously.  Any suggestions?

Setup
Game Display Tab
Play-by-Play box in upper left hand corner.
Move <PBP Speed> to the right towards "Slow"

You can also check the box underneath that titled "Short Play-By-Play".

I'm having the same issue since the 4/20 patch was installed. Even with the slider all the way to the right (as slow as it goes) the PBP just appears and the narrator doesn't say anything about the play. First thing Monday morning I'll report this to DKS tech support.

I'm having the exact same problem. I was already into a season replay when I loaded the patch. The PBP speed was unacceptable. Luckily I still had my 2017 Football game loaded, so I switched over to the 2017 game and I'm playing the season on the 2017 version of the game until I can get the problem fixed.

Check your video chalkboard speed. From the opening page go to setup/game preferences/field display and adjust your video chalkboard speed. Was having the same issue and Dave walked me through it.

Thanks! I did what you suggested and it seems to have solved the problem. I wasn't even aware of the chalkboard settings before. I thank you ...and Dave.

I just bought the game, and had the same problem with narration.  I had to turn off the video chalkboard, and then the narration works.  If I have the video chalkboard on, no matter what speed, the narration stops working.

Using vertical field, cannot slow it down at all.  Play stops, then I see play result - does not roll out slowly at all.

I had the same problem.  I emailed Dave at Customer Support.  He emailed me a patch, and now it works fine.

I have the latest patch on the 2018 version and the PBP doesn't smoothly roll out like previous version rather it quickly lists the play result. Have tried adjusting the speed on the Game Display preferences without any success.
