First, let's get the basics out of the way. Do you have the drivers
installed?
If not, go here and get them. If your PC is 64-bit, you'll want the
64-bit driver:

Once these are installed, restart your computer and try again.

Last I checked many years ago, that addon worked. I don't have a
dectalk, so can't debug it here. If you really want it to work, we might
be able to debug remotely with you on Skype or something, but I can't
guarantee anything.

What is it doing? Exactly which addon do you have and does it talk at
all? How is the synth connected, serial or USB?
