Roger Ebert Likes his Mac and Alex

Over a year ago Roger Ebert lost his voice in the battle for his health. I find this story interesting for a lot of reasons, not only because it’s a Mac friendly piece.

Then I upgraded to the Leopard Mac OX operating system, and found a new Mac voice named Alex. I am using it now. Amazingly Alex, is the first voice I have yet heard that understands and reflects question marks and exclamation points!?! This prevents every sentence from being spoken in a monotone.
