Zoom: Text to Speech

Customising Zoom

Text to Speech Interface

Zoom can use Mac OS X's built-in text to speech feature to read out the text from a story. To enable this feature, check 'Speak game text' in the general preferences tab.

With this feature turned on, Zoom will read out whatever text the story produces. If you are using this feature in conjunction with VoiceOver, you may find that turning off VoiceOver's cursor tracking feature will help with navigating the text produced by the story as when tracking is turned on, the VoiceOver cursor will move to the end of the window after every command. You can turn off cursor tracking by pressing control+option+shift+f3.
