I chose the voice that sounds the most like ME (Victoria) and played with the speed and modulation until it was so close to my voice that Ted often thinks I'm talking to him from the computer room.
I've even had it doing the ALERT Sounds for a while One day I was on the phone with a Comcast Techie and an Alert came up and Victoria read it aloud.. the PC Centric Techie impatiently "answered me" saying; "I'm doing the best he can!" etc. on the 3rd go I realized what was happening and told him that it wasn't me, it was my Mac Computer reading Alert Texts!
It blew him away! He stopped working and said; "WHAT??? Your computer TALKS!??!"
up until then, I'd taken it for granted that ALL Computers had that native capability... I guess not.
