Convert text to a sound file.

Overview

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 in Orator

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.

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.

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.

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