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.

O recurso VoiceOver


Método 1 - Text to Speech

  • Open System Preferences
  • Click the ‘Speech’ button
  • Choose ‘Text to Speech’ 
  • Tick ‘Speak selected text when key is pressed’ 
  • Click the ‘Set Key’ button to define a key command that does not conflict with key commands in your favorite applications

Text to Speech in System Preferences

Text to Speech em Preferências do Sistema.


Setting a Key Combination

A definição de uma combinação de teclas.


Em qualquer aplicação, agora você pode realçar o texto com o ponteiro do mouse, e quando você pressiona o comando escolhido chave seu Mac irá falar as palavras usando a voz selecionada na Voz Sistema drop-down menu, e à taxa determinada pelo controle deslizante velocidade da fala .


Tome nota:

A voz que você escolher para Text to Speech é independente do que você definir para o VoiceOver. Isto pode ser útil para a diferenciação entre os dois, se você também usar o VoiceOver.

Este método dá a você controle sobre o que é falado, onde VoiceOver dá uma descrição de cada campo ativo em uma janela. VoiceOver irá falar o texto em um documento (bem como dando-lhe a formatação da informação), mas é mais temperamental com navegadores web. Por exemplo, tentar obter VoiceOver para ler um artigo Hub macProVideo.com! Com Text to Speech, basta selecionar o texto que você quer ouvir e aperte o seu comando personalizado chave

Text to Speech e VoiceOver não podem ser usados ​​simultaneamente, mas você pode trocar rapidamente de um para o outro usando comandos de tecla (que você pode transformar VoiceOver ligado ou desligado usando


Método 2 - Criando um arquivo de áudio no iTunes

  • Enable the service by going to System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts > Services
  • Select ‘Services’ in the left-hand column
  • Under the 'Text' subheading, tick ‘Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track’

Setting up Services in System Preferences

Criação de Serviços em Preferências do Sistema.


Em qualquer aplicação suportada ir para o menu de aplicativos e você encontrará Adicionar ao iTunes como uma faixa falados nas opções de serviços. Por exemplo, no Firefox:

  • Select some text
  • Choose Firefox > Services > Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track
  • In iTunes you will find the audio file in a playlist called ‘Spoken Text’ (this is created automatically if it doesn’t already exist)

Text to Speech files in iTunes

Texto para arquivos de voz no iTunes.


Tome nota:

  • 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
