Speech/Voice software

Hi. I’ve been using Scrivener for years. Absolutely love it. Up till now, I’ve had Mac’s Alex read my work back to me. I’m a big fan. But I hear there are even better voices out there. Wondered which software/apps you’d recommend for use with Scrivener? Thanks.

Have you tried downloading other voices supplied with Mac OS X (assuming that they are available in your version of Mac OS X)? I am using 10.8.4, and there are quite a few additional choices available for download if you click on the “Customize…” option at the bottom of the “System Voice” dropdown in the Dictation & Speech pane under System Preferences. The one I use is Fiona, probably because it is closest to my own accent :wink:
