    Highlight the text you want your computer speak, then in the menu bar open the menu that has the name of the current application, (left of "File")
    Open that and then the "Services" sub-menu, find the "Speech" sub-sub-menu and click "Start Speaking Text".

    You can also go into System Preference>Speech to customize the voice, shortcuts and other aspects.
