Fun With Say

If you have a Mac, try this.  Open up Terminal (it's under Applications/Utiltiies) then at the command line type:

    say -v "Cellos"  "Droid"

You can actually type anything in the second part you want to say.

    say -v "Cellos"  "Wow, this is really interesting.  I did not know you could sound like this."

In fact, you can just type

    say -v "Cellos"

Then keep typing lines of text.  To end it, hold down the Control key and press D  (Ctl-D).

There are also many different voices you can play with.
