Speaks whatever is on the computer clipboard whenever the application is brought to the foreground. If the clipboard is unchanged it is ignored, otherwise it speaks the new clipboard text. Highlight any text in the window and have it speak that text. Simple but effective for speaking text in applications that don't have a keyboard shortcut. There is no Linux version of SpeakHaven as the speech technology used is not supported on that platform. SpeakHaven is ideal for Parallels Desktop and VMWare Fusion users wanting Windows applications to speak their text, but lack a suitable keyboard shortcut. Just copy the Windows text to the Windows clipboard, jump to SpeakHaven (the Mac or Windows version) and the text is spoken. Jump back to see the text while it is spoken! Click the disclosure triangle to minimise the window. Type the up/right arrow to increase the volume. Type the left/down arrow to decrease the volume. Type the 'm' key to mute/unmute the volume.
