Hidden under its hood, your Mac has powerful accessibility options that are useful for all. In this quick tip, Mike Watkinson communicates his love of the built-in Text to Speech options.

Die VoiceOver-Funktion


Methode 1 - Text to Speech

Aufgepasst:

Die Stimme, die Sie für Text to Speech ist unabhängig von der einen, die Sie für VoiceOver gesetzt. Dies kann nützlich sein für die Unterscheidung zwischen den beiden, wenn Sie auch VoiceOver.

Diese Methode gibt Ihnen die Kontrolle über das, was gesprochen wird, wo VoiceOver gibt eine Beschreibung von jedem aktiven Bereich in einem Fenster. VoiceOver wird der Text in einem Dokument (ebenso wie die Ihnen Formatierungsinformationen) sprechen, aber ist temperamentvoll mit Web-Browsern.

Mit Text to Speech, wählen Sie einfach den gewünschten Text zu hören, und drücken Sie Ihre benutzerdefinierten Tastaturbefehl

Aufgepasst:

  • The files will all be named ‘Text to Speech’ so you may need to rename them
  • The voice used is the Mac OS default ("Alex") and cannot easily be changed
  • You can set up a key command in the same System Preferences window (System Preferences > Keyboards > Keyboard Shortcuts) by double-clicking to the right of the Service description (see image) and entering your key command of choice. This saves you from having to access the function through menus, as described above.

    Actually you can change the voice for the 'Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track' option, but not easliy in System Preferences, unfortunately. 1. Go to System>Library>Services 2. Double click the following file: Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track.workflow 3. It will open in Automator 4. In the Text to audio file section change the System Voice to your preference (you can try them out in SytemePrefernces>Voice>Text to Speech but changes made here do not affect this particalur Service) 5. You won't be able to overwrite the existing file as you won't have permissions, but if you choose File>Save as.. you can save it with a new name. It will be saved in ~/Library/Services and will only be available to the user who created it Hope that helps! Mike Watkinson

    Thanks, Mike, for the link to that very inspiring article. I was fortunate enough to be in my childhood/teenage years when Stevie's career was at its peak. His music left (and still leaves) a great impression on me. To hear him talk about Steve Jobs and Apple the way he does in the article you linked to is yet another well deserved tribute of the many millions that he truly deserves. One of the comments posted at the end of that article links here: http://www.wired.com/epicenter/2011/10/steve-jobs-disability/ I found that interesting, being that I work in a self-contained Special Ed. school. iPads, and, of course, Logic Studio, are at the heart of the music program that I teach there. Your mention of Stevie Wonder also brought to mind another immensely talented musician who is using voiceover technology: http://www.raulmidon.com/media/videos/making-synthesis Many Thanks, Adam
