Orator is a small application used to convert typed text into a sound file. The application is very simple and uses only one window. Type, paste, or drag text to the window, pick a voice and save the text to a file. Orator can also read text aloud.

What you can do with Orator's Files:

  • Create custom system beeps!
  • Save articles off the Web and transfer to your iPod!
  • Use iTunes to convert the AIFF files to mp3's. Share and stream with your friends!

What's New

Version 2.1b2: This is a beta release that fixes the Save command that broke with Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger. Re-added the speech rate control.

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.2 or later

Are we ever going to get a Universal Binary of this? I've always loved this app, it's a shame that it has to run under Rosetta now.

Works very well. It looks like "books 2 burn", but this app is 1000x better. Kudos to the dev.

Overall, pretty nifty! All it really needs is a stop button so that it will stop speaking the text when you need to change something.

Even though it is not documented, you may cancel the speaking at any time by pressing Command-period.
