Speech

Version 1.9.3

Intuitive text-to-speech app.

Speech overview

Speech combines all the features of the speech synthesizer of Mac OS X into a single, easy-to-use interface. Under OS X 10.7 or later, many languages are available: choose among more than 80 voices!

Drag or paste text into Speech and start reading. You can change at any time the voice and the speech rate. Click on a word to playback from a specific point of the text.

Export the text into an audio file, share or listen on an digital audio player.

Features:
  • Compatible with OS X 10.7's voices: 80 high quality new voices and over 40 languages.
  • Save time, listening a text is faster than reading.
  • Efficient to learn and be sure of the pronunciation.

This app is redundant of features already in OS X. Example: Drop text into Apple's TextEdit and perform the same. Use the Dictation & Speech system preferences to alter voices. Note that there are free apps that similarly summarize these OS X features. Also: Do NOT count on the pronunciations of Apple's Speech voices to represent human spoken speech. Apple compatible voices are certainly very good, but they are NOT perfect. Listen to and repeat from REAL human speakers instead for best results.
