Hi, Im preparing a linguistics experiment for my university degree. I need my Mac to read words to the participant, who must memorize and recall these at a latter stage. I want to use Apples VoiceOver (i.e., Alex) for this, so that I can quickly create recordings that are pronounced in a uniform way. Each participant will have a slightly different set of around 30 words, so overall Im going to require many VoiceOver recordings. I could prepare these manually by, for example, typing the word into TextEdit > CTRL-click > Speech > Start speaking, and then record my Macs sound output, but ideally I want a much faster method. Also, each participants set of words will be generated by the previous participant, so I need to be able to prepare the recordings quickly in time for the next participant. Therefore, what I need is an application/AppleScript/Automator workflow/whatever that will help me produce VoiceOver recordings. I.e., I input a list of 30 words, and it generates 30 sound files (ideally AAC or MP3) of these words. The filename of each sound file would reflect the word it contains. Im hoping someone here might be able to recommend the best way I can go about achieving this? Thanks for reading and I hope the above makes some kind of sense... Jon.
