Email me when discounted: 

The Yoda Widget simply lets you enter a sentence into a text box... you hit enter, the widget will reorder the words and uses a system voice to speak the generated text out loud. For example: you type "I am Yoda." and Yoda will say "Yoda, I am".

This widget changes the order of the words in the sentence that you type in. The voice that is used to speak the text relies on the voices provided by Mac OS.

Tips: There is no definite pattern on the sentence structure that Yoda uses:

  • Sentences containing verbs such as "to have" or "to be" work well.
  • Sentences containing subjects like "I", "you" , "we", more...

What's New

Version 1.1:
  • Changed the default voice to "Whisper" upon user requests. If you prefer a different default voice, you can choose another one in the widget's preferences.
  • Improved the word-reordering-algorithm.
    • common contractions such as "I'm", "Don't", etc. are recognized.
    • composite sentences (seperated by commas) are not reginized.
    • negetations are not recognized.
  • The more...

Requirements

Mac OS X 10.4 or later

Direct from the much love Episode 1:

Jar-Jar Binks: Ooh moi moi I love you!
Qui-Gon Jinn: You almost got us killed! Are you brainless?
Jar-Jar Binks: I speck!
Qui-Gon Jinn: The ability to speak does not make you intelligent. Now get out of here.

If you read the description, you would know that it uses a voice from the Mac OS' speech. Developing a custom speech synthesis takes lots and lots of time. Maybe you are expecting a bit much from a free software.

I have always wondered why a being of such intelligence is too dumb to learn a language properly. And what's fascinating about someone who has no command of grammar. Maybe it's like with super happy parents who learn baby language instead of teaching their little one to speak...

The description above should read:
- composite sentences (seperated by commas) are now recognized.
- negetations are now recognized.

sorry for the typos.
