Speaking from the Command Line

One of eight tips from [Mitchell Cohen][] points out that you can not only use Mac OS X’s built-in *Text to Speech* engine from the command line (`say “some text”`), but, even more usefully, you can save the results to an audio file–again, all from the command line:

say -f mytext.txt -o myaudio.aiff
