In this movie we'll learn how to use the Mac's text-to-speech functionality…from the command line.…We can type something and then our Mac will save it for us.…Now before we start making our Mac talk, be sure to check your computers volume…level make sure it's not set a something too high.…The way that we are going to do it is using the Mac only Unix command say,…and then after that we'll tell it what we wanted to say, so we're going to…have "Unix is awesome". …(Computer voice: Unix is awesome.)…That's it there is all there is to it. Now the voice that is talking in is the…voice that set as the default voice for your Mac. There are also other voices as well.…
We go into the Finder hold down Command+Shift+U it will open up the…Utilities folder and then right below Terminal you see there something…called VoiceOver Utility.…If you open that up and you click on the Speech option, you'll see that what the…default voice is set out and you can click on this and see list of all the…choices for all the voices that you can pick.…
