No Voice Announcement from ELK-M1KP

Is there a setting to have the KeyPAD sound the voice announcements?
I have the Chime Tone/Voice on.

And if you're going to do it, why use a weigand reader rather than a wireless keyfob? It seems to me it has a lot to do with the installers' recommendations that could steer a client either way.

I was under the impression that the Elk proximity reader would work through siding and insulation; can you really not install the reader just outside of the KP2 flush mount box and make a custom cable (may not be required) to work with the KP2? This was my plan anyways...

With a KP1, you can use the internal type unit. With all of them, as long as you have an appropriate pigtail, you can connect a 26-bit wiegand device to all of them, doesn't need to be a prox, but any sort of credential that spits 26 bit weigand...iris reader if you really wanted. I've used external readers straight into the keypads as well as use KAM's on the system also.
You can put an external reader outside of the KP2, but doesn't that do away with the benefits of a "trim" keypad recessed in the wall or surface mounted even. Also, with a prox reader, you need to factor in what the reader is mounted on or near, affecting the read range and sometimes data.
With the M1, you can specify how the panel acts on a valid swipe, if you don't check the arm/disarm box or access, it controls how the panel responds, even by user.
IE: you could have an external reader fire a strike, but still require the user to enter a code to disarm the system as stated. You can also assign access windows and schedules if you really wanted to. Sure you could perform some of the same actions using a fob, but it is inherently less secure as a credential.
