OK I guess it's not really a new feature, but more of an improvement for an existing feature. Do any of you guys use text to speech? If you did before leopard, then you would know that the available voices sound like total idiots. Alex, the "New voice for Leopard" as he describes himself, is a more advanced speech engine than the other voices, and much more true to life as a result. As a Social Sciences grad student, I have to do a ridiculously insane amount of reading, and having a digital copy has now become a bonus, cos I can get the new Alex to read it though the not new text to speech feature. For those that don't know how: -System preferences pane -Speech (in the system section) -go through the system voices (alex only on Leopard, but others are there) -select "speak selected text when the key is pressed" and chose whatever combo. -highlight any text pretty much anywhere (internet browser, text doc, etc etc) and press chosen key combo -enjoy intelligible and coherent voice read your work for you. I've just had Alex read my lectures notes on the intro to Emile by Rousseau for philosophy of ed. Would have been torture without it. So how many of you guys use it, or don't? P.S. Don't tell me, I noticed I have spelt speech wrong in the poll.
