The MacDevCenter has a long article about ways that the Speech capabilities built into Mac OS X today can be used to do useful actions and to customize how you interact with your computer. [Via: Mac Net Journal]
This is a very interesting read. I’ve often played with the Speech and have used it a lot to play texts on my iPod while I walk the dog. It’s also timely given Apple announcement [reported everywhere] about a spoken interface for Mac OS X.
The Universal Access capabilities of Mac OS X will soon be enhanced with a spoken interface that provides a new way, through speech, audible cues, and keyboard navigation, to access the Macintosh.
There’s a lot of information there. Be sure to visit, and if you have comments Apple provide a link for you to send them in.
