That Mac Is Hot

Time to geek out...

If you're into Macs then you know that Steve Jobs gave his keynote speech at the World Wide Developers Conference today. There were no surprises on the hardware side, with Mac Pros and new Xserves being announced, but software wise, there was one little gem that caught my ear. Apple's universal Access, built right in to OS X, is designed for the people who have trouble using computers. Universal Access includes Voiceover, which is a utility that can read text aloud. In the new version of OS X, called Leopard, Voiceover has gotten a makeover. The new voice is named Alex. Alex's voice is crazy hot. I'm not joking. Give it a listen here.

This is the best thing about Leopard. I sometimes like to just highlight text blocks (blogs) and let the Mac read it back to me while Im working..
