SimpleSay lets you type text and have it spoken out loud using your Mac's built-in voices. The streamlined user interface makes it easy - just type and press Enter to speak.
The recents list lets you re-use phrases without having to type them in again. You can choose a voice, embed codes for changing the rate and add pauses. Insert pauses and change the speech rate using inline commands, which you can type or insert from the menu.
You can speak the text out loud, or save the text to an audio file for use in other applications.
Originally created for providing clues for an Escape Room, SimpleSay is useful for audio announcements,
or any time you'd just like your Mac to say something out loud using its excellent voices.
You can hear what the voices sound like before downloading this app by visiting your Mac's System Preferences,
and visit the Speech section of the Accessibility panel.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
