10.7: Automator Services for multi-language speech
Authored by: sugarquay on Aug 26, '11 03:56:38AM

Rather than making a separate Service for each voice or writing a script to enable you to choose a voice, simply add this simple step to the above hint:

After adding the 'Speak Text' action, click its 'Options' and check/select 'Show this action when the workflow runs'.

You may still select a particular voice from the list to be your default if you wish, but now each time this Service runs, you'll get a small dialog box asking you to choose a voice from all those installed on your system, and your selected text will be spoken using whichever voice you choose.
