10.6: Easily create spoken iTunes tracks from any text
Authored by: plagarri on Feb 22, '10 12:16:44PM

Thanks for this hint which works fine but only with Alex voice although I've selected Vicki in system preferences!
Is there a way to set another voice?

10.6: Easily create spoken iTunes tracks from any text

You can make the change in the Speech Syst Pref, Text To Speech option. There are three male and three female voices from which to choose.

Edit voice used, filename, encoding method, etc.

You can edit the AppleScript .workflow file easily!

If you double click the .workflow file, it'll open up in Automator - where you can then edit and change attributes. When you save your results, use Save As so you can keep the original script intact - as a back up. You'll probably have to activate your new script by using this original hint, once you're done.

You'll find the file on your System hard drive, under System > Library > Services > Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track.workflow.

It's a VERY simple script actually!
