Years ago I reassigned 'speak selected text' to F19 on my wired extended keyboard. I use it daily; it's super for reading back document 'drafts' & whatnot, or just reading newspaper articles & the like while I'm up to something else in the area.
Hi, Is there a way to switch voices on the fly. I also use F19 but I am bilingual and often read in another language.
JP: Not sure what you mean by "on the fly" -- it is pretty easy to change the voice.
Gary, I would like to set a voice reminder for every 20min. To get up and take a break! I would like to use my own voice. How can I do this on my iMac and iPad?
Helen: You'll probably need an app for that. Search the Mac App Store for "break reminder" and a bunch of things come up.
