Wasn't sure where to put this thread but I guess as the speak highlighted text command on the Mac is inbuilt to the OS this might be the best place.

I use it quite a lot actually if there's a word that I've never seen before or can't read too well (I'm dyslexic so it helps a fair bit more that you'd think!)

Recently I've tried my hand a learning to speak French, having good old Mac speech veteran 'Alex' speak French words on French websites to me would be great.

BUT! How do I change the speech language, he seems to just sound out the French words syllables in English which makes it come out wrong!

Any ideas? I'm hoping this is a one button fix!!!!


Cheers!

Just a guess on my part here, but it's likely that you would have to change the language preference on your Mac from English to French before Alex would start speaking French.
