Last week, I wrote a short article for TidBITS about the Aperture 2.0.1 update. In addition to bug fixes, the update improves AppleScript support in the digital photo editor, and I pointed to a page at Apple that included videos demonstrating what could be done. To my surprise, those videos used text-to-speech narration instead of a human voiceover – and it was tolerable.
Turns out the voice is Lucy, a British English female voice available as part of Infovox iVox. If you’re interested in how Apple incorporates an artificial voiceover in many of their videos, check out the “Rendered Narrations” video at Automator.us.
