Nice article! How can I change default voice for audio files added to iTunes playlist? I hope it isn't so tricky! :-)

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!

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:

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:
