Re: Mathematica can talk!
The Voices button on the Speech control panel lets you select the voice and its speed, but you must select this before you start Mathematica for the changes to be effective. There must be some undocumented backdoor to allow Mathematica to use this under program control (rather than just keyboard input), and most likely Theodore Gray has the key to that door. Jlink offers another way to access the Mac's speech system. > I have a Mac with Mac9.04.
