Using Speech Feature

Using your Mac’s speech feature is handy for proofreading a document, or listening to news on your Mac while getting dressed.

To have your Mac read you text from a website like MacMost.com, select System Preferences, and then Speech.

Next, check the “Speak selected text when the key is pressed” checkbox and then press the “set key…” button. Choose a key combination such as “Command + Control + S” and then press OK. Next, choose a voice.

We like “Bruce” because it sounds like Stephen Hawking. Now go to a web page and select some text. Then press Command + Control + S to have the text read to you.
