I was looking for a text to speech (TTS) Software for Mac that had the ability to output a audio file switching back and forth between several different voices as if to hear a conversation between two characters. For example, if I transcribed a screenplay, I could be able to hear the dialogue between two characters in two different voices.

Does anyone know of a TTS Software for Mac with this ability?

Preferably free or with a free trial/download?

If I'm not mistaken, OS X has text to speech built right in. For example, if you have TextEdit, you can highlight the text you want to be read, go to the TextEdit menu => Services => Speech => Start Speaking Text. This is a universal service, so it works the same way in just about any program. You can set different voices in System Preferences => Speech => Text to Speech tab.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
