    I have gotten Leopard's new voice Alex to read something in Textedit, but is there a way to save it to an AAC or MP3 format?

    It looks like the link no longer leads anywhere--anyone have an update? Thanks!

    I know it's not the same solution but you could try the demo of Audio Hijack if you only need it a little bit.

    http://rogueamoeba.com/audiohijackpro/

    there's a free demo, which should do the job. Just click the plus in the bottom left corner and select textedit (or the application you're making speak) and then hijack and record :)

    Not exactly what you're looking for but it should do what you need it to do!

    Ah, I forgot about Audio Hijack, that's a good idea, thanks!

    I found the answer myself

    Well,

    I found someone else online who found the answer. Here's a great way to create an automator application that will do it. NOTE: use one of the commenter's suggestions to avoid leaving AIFFs lying about.

    I did this to a 9 hour novel and listened to it with Alex. Once getting used to the cadence, it was great.

    Wow, so simple! This is the first time I've even opened Automator in 9 months since I switched to Mac, and I'm surprised how easy it was to use. Thanks, now I've got a way to spit out lyrics for this electro track I've been working on :)
