I'm trying create a workflow to utilize the MacOS Say command. With this command, I'd like to queue up several paragraphs for it to speak and highlight the spoken paragraph.

Hey all, I've created a text-to-speech workflow based on Mac OS's 'say' command. With it you type 'say' followed by 'what you want to say'. You are then given a list of installed voices to pick from.

Selection by voice name say @ # Show list of active voices on typing @; submit to speak demo text in all voices. say
