Getting Your Mac to Speak Other Languages

For an excellent up-to-date reference on other voices for OS X's Text-To-Speech features, see this page at Ricky Buchanan's ATMac site.

Hi Tom
This is a brilliant site which shed - at least some - light on to why inserting turkish text from a word document into InDesign for the Mac is such a hassle.

Hi Tom,

Thanks for a useful site!

I was wondering if you know of any resources for multilingual voice input/speech recognition (on Mac or PC). All of the information I have found so far has been about reading and writing, with a little covering multilingual audio.

Thanks!

Sorry, no. You might want to ask these folks

http://www.macspeech.com/

what languages besides English they currently support.

Thanks for link Tom. :-)

Unfortunately MacSpeech Dictate is only in English. A sales representative mentioned that they are aiming for multilingual, but there is no time frame set at the moment.
