A nice idea, another alternative is to use Quicksilver, and assign a button combo to 'speak selection', which works from any application.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the image used here a rip from a Hitchhiker's guide to the galaxy icon set? I remember seeing either at yellow icon or icon factory. Either way, it's not too cool to take other people's images without their permission. I hope that's not the case.

Better than TextEdit? Somebody needs an education here. With OS X you can voice text _anywhere_ it's selected. Anywhere. But there's something wrong with TextEdit? Uh - OK... And this widget is handy? Oh yeah? For what?

Heh, it's nice that a new background image is used, but it looks like a lot of the code for this widget is straight from Apple's "Voices" widget. If you install Apple's free developer tools, you can see the Voices code at: /Developer/Examples/Dashboard Sample Code/Voices Or try out the actual widget and you can play with the different system voices: /Developer/Examples/Dashboard/Sample\ Widgets/Voices.wdgt

Nice widget. Useful. At least, this time we don't have to use TextEdit to hear the text that we want to hear. It would be perfect if the software offers facility to change the speech voice but not only the system default voice. It is fun to use it to fool around with friends who don't have a Mac. Anyway, good work, well done.

The widget is just a tad bloated because the author decided to keep the source Photoshop PSDs in the widget instead of removing them before packaging. Also, I don't care for the "Hi there sexy! What would you like me to say?" greeting when it starts up. I can change things like that myself, but for the uninitiated it would be nice to have a couple of config choices so the user can decide to listen to that or not. Other than those things, this is a very handy widget. 4 stars.

Uh It's not a very good idea to use someone's icons without their permission. I believe that those are Everaldo Coelho's Hitchhicker icons. http://www.everaldo.com/
