Customize Your VoiceOver Pronunciation

Say again! Mac OS X’s built-in text-to-speech engine is pretty great, but there are some things it just doesn’t pronounce correctly. For example: Macgasm. It basically pronounces it as “Macgam.” I have no idea why it drops the “S,” but it can be quickly remedied. Go into your /Applications/Utilities folder, and open the “VoiceOver Utility.” Now go to the Speech tab. Press the + button, and then enter the “before” text into the first field. In the next field, enter a phonetic approximation of your desired pronunciation. Close the window, and you’re good to go.
