Read4Me lets your Mac do the talking. It will read text and pronounce it in a choice of voices. You can save the audio to file. And it is very easy to start, stop and select another voice, and change the speed of reading in words per minute.

Actually it is a full text editor with spell check, printing, saving to Rich Text Format or Plain Text.

Nice for kids, great for presenters, and as a media-production utility.

in system prefs/speech/text to speech/customize I downloaded Serena and Emily -- from Uk voices. they are quite nice to listen to. just highlight any text in any app and press option-esc. it's good to use for proofreading your stuff back to you. Jill and Samantha are pretty pleasant for american-english. there's a script now too to "add to iTunes as spoken track" under the Services menu.

just some tips -- not sure what this app does. could be a 5-star app, i don't know.

Read4me can read dialogs with multiple voices. The Coach allows tagging the text to introduce pitch changes, rate changes, pauses, etc. You can save Microsoft Word documents to AudioBook, and also web pages, rich text, and plain text.

Mac OS X 10.7 does this for you. What's the use of this program then?

Yep. Highlight any text in any app, press the F4 key, and you've saved yourself 4 bucks. Choose the voice of your choice in the "Speech" system preference.

Saves to AudioBook, multilingual dialogs, text highlighted when read, tuning pronunciation. Keyboard shortcuts. The most advanced text-to-speech app.
