Using Phrase bar does not require optional Acapela text to speech. If you do not have Acapela TTS, the digital recorded sound is placed in the phrase bar. If you have Acapela TTS the recorded sound is placed in the phrase bar by default, but you can also use Acapela TTS or a specific TTS phrase that is different than the text in the cell.
Turn on the phrase bar in settings
There are two other Settings that relate directly to Phrase Mode. The are 'Voice adding to Phrase' and 'Pics in Phrase'

Text to speech output: If you have not purchased an Acapela voice, the TTS output will be an adult female U.S. English voice. If you have purchased an Acapela voice (In App Purchase) the TTS output will be the voice that you have activated. The free TTS works only with the adult female U.S. English voice and probably should not be used after the purchase of an Acapela voice.
