Text2Speech is exactly what its name implies: a program that reads your text documents. This type of applications comes in handy to people who are dealing with vision problems and wish to easily transform text documents into audio content.
The utility comes with a straightforward interface, allows you to paste, write or import text content, and lets you choose from a wide range of voice profiles. Furthermore, it gives you access to options for setting the reading speed, automatically loop once the reading process is complete, etc.
Unfortunately, unlike the Pro version of this application, this variant doesn't let you save the audio results to your local directories. It can only read the imported text and that's it. The Pro version allows you to export the audio content to formats like AIFF and MP3.
Another disadvantage is the fact that the program might take a while to analyze the entered text before reading it.
In conclusion, you should try the Pro version of this application if you're looking for an efficient and feature-rich text-to-speech utility for your Mac.
