What exactly is new about this software that isn't already incorporated into OS X? You can already turn any text into MP3s using OS X and/or freeware tools. I noted that the developer website discusses Acapella InfoVox iVox voices being compatible with Mac2Speech. Except Assistiveware already provides a free tool to make all Acapella voices compatible with OS X. Therefore, $39 is paying for what, exactly? If there is something unique here, it requires some explanation.

You absolutely correct, a Mac already comes with a command line tool that synthesizes text into sound, which can be saved into an IAFF file format.
Mac2Speech is a value-add, allowing to stream, save, and/or serve synthesized text as MP3 files.
Mac2Speech is a server, which can be used on your network, to synthesize text into MP3 file.
In summary your are not paying for the synthesis but the convenience to have it converted into a high quality MP3 file which can severed to other machines e.g. played in a web browser.
