Speak the Text is a very simple automator application that will read the text from the front opened textedit file through the accessibility feature in the OS X.

Follow these steps to get your text file spoken to you:

  • Open the text file you need to listen to.
  • Run the automator action.
That's it, the action will simply grab the text from the file and read it out loud through the accessibility feature in the OS X.
