Audio Notetaker can use Mac's in-built system to read out the text in your Text and Reference Panes. Click the Speak button to read out the text in the current section from the cursor position.
You can press the button a second time to stop speaking and the cursor position will move. Press Speak again to resume.
Clicking on the dropdown menu will give you further options;
Speak All Text
- Reads aloud all your text (visible Panes only), starting at the first section. If you stop Speak then it will resume back at the first section!
Send Speech To Audio Pane
- This sends all the speech (in the current Pane/Section) to your Audio Pane and displays with shaded chunks. (Speech is added to the end of any audio already in the section).
Send All Speech To Audio Pane
- This sends all the speech from your entire document to your Audio Pane and displays with shaded chunks. (Speech is added to the end of any audio already in the section).
- This opens System Preferences allowing you to select which voice is used for Speak and change the speed. Please note that not all voices will be compatible with Audio Notetaker, some voices can only be used in the application they were supplied with.
