    I’d like to be able to have Automator convert text to an audio file. But I’d also like it to ask for a name to give the resulting audio file. How would I go about this?

    You can use an AppleScript variable. Something like this :

    Note : Tested on Mavericks. YMMV

    If it can help, I've wrote this applescript to convert a text file to audio. You choose input file and output file name with the standard dialogs.
