    Details about using Text Speech in Mac OS X?

    Is it true that we can run some command in Mac OS X to use the text speech option. Can you please tell me how to do that in my Mac? So that I can show it to my friends and probably make them to use it too.

    STEP 3: No execute the command - say Hi everyone.
    STEP 4: The above command will make your Mac to speak up “hi everyone” if the computer speakers are up.
    STEP 5: You can also try the command osascript -e ‘say “any text” using “any voice”’ which will enable to speak up the text in different tones.
