I've whipped up a little workflow which will allow you to send TTS (Text to Speech) phrases to various Sonos devices (assuming you have more than one). I primarily use it to send messages to my kids room telling him to clean up. Directions are available at the GitHub Repo. The plugin works by using lame and say to generate an .mp3 file (called tts.mp3) which is stored somewhere on a sonos accessible path (such as //imac/share). Once the file is generated the plugin utilizes SoCo (a python lib) to tell sonos to play the mp3 file. You can get the latest re
The workflow comes with two distinct feature groups: Speak the active application's text with a specific voice; useful for multilingual setups where you want to have text spoken in one of several languages on demand. For instance, you could have one global keyboard shortcut for speaking text in English, and another one for Spanish. Speak specified text with one or more voices, selectable by name(s) or language(s); useful for interactive experimentation with multiple voices, such as to contrast regional accents. For details, see the repo. Here's the direct download link to the most rece
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. Select a voice with the arrows or simply hit enter to have your phrase spoken aloud.

[OBSOLETE - superseded by speak.awf] Uses OS X’s TTS (text-to-speech) feature to speak text aloud. It is especially useful if you handle many voices, possibly in multiple languages - note that OS X allows on-demand download of voices in other languages. Examples say # Speak the default voice's demo text. say I speak, therefore I am. # Speak the specified text with the default voice. Selection by voice name say @ # Show list of active voices on typing @; submit to speak demo text in all voices. say
