Verbalize

I am super excited to share this terrific AAC resource. It is called
Verbalize and it is for OSX. Basically, you type, press enter and it
speaks. Command-S and you can save that into an audio file. Go
freeware! This can potentially turn an old mac laptop into a powerful
tool for someone who types to communicate! Check it out! Also, does
anyone know any other osx or windows software of this type?
