By default, speaking is enabled when you press Option-Esc.Choose a voice. Alex is the default but there are many others.For full screen-reading capability (like JAWS) you can turn on voice over.If you'd like to convert web pages and text tiles to recordings stored in Apple Music, open the Keyboard system preference pane and select the Shortcuts tab. Tap "Services" on the left and you'll see a variety of useful services you can add to the Services menu. On Catalina and later look for "Add to Music as Spoken Track" in previous versions of macOS it will say iTunes instead. You can even add a keyboard shortcut. Look for the Services entry under the Applications main menu. In the Text section, you'll find an entry to add the selected text to Music. You can also right-click on a text selection in some apps (the Services menu isn't always available as a right-click, however).If you do this a lot or want to convert a number of files from text to speech at once, you can create an Automator app to do this, too.Leo Laporte gives you helpful tips to get the most from your Mac every week on Hands-On Mac.

"Hey Google" Smart Home Summit Google hosted this virtual smart home IoT conference for developers, their first after canceling Google I/O and other events. TWiT's Smart Tech Today hosts Mikah Sargent and Matthew Cassinelli gave color commentary. The event was not quite the professionally-produced affair that Apple and Microsoft gave us at their developer keynotes earlier this year - it seemed more like a hastily-arranged Zoom call. After a 15-minute delay, Vlad Serban, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for Scale at Google, started things off. Phillip Klimke, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for Security at Google, discussed security. Tasnoba Nusrat, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for Comfort and Control at Google, talked about controlling energy management devices. Katelyn Mason, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for SHED at Google, introduced Google's home entertainment devices. Alessandro Germano, the Head of Business Development for Latin America and Bianca Waclawek, the Strategic Partner Development Manager for LATAM at Google, focused on the importance of developing relationships in Latin America. The main keynote featured Michele Turner, Director of Product Management for Google Smart Home Ecosystem Devices. She quickly went through several IoT topics: New Google Smart Home Ecosystem devices and routines Gentle Sleep and Wake Android 11 will have dedicated IOT controls New security controls for IoT devices More controls for state reporting New Local Home SDK with improved controls, smart home logs, statistics, and analytics The transition from "Works with Nest" to "Works with Google Assistant" More "Home and Away" routines and custom routines for partners With Project Connected Home Over IP, Google is working with Amazon, Apple, and Zigbee to develop an open standard for IoT based on Internet Protocol Hosts: Mikah Sargent and Matthew Cassinelli Download or subscribe to this show at https://twit.tv/shows/twit-news.

Steve Jobs loved typefaces and typography. He says his love began when he audited a calligraphy course at Reed College. I'm glad he did because one of the things that have distinguished the Mac since its beginning is its beautiful typefaces.macOS comes with hundreds of beautiful fonts, but you may be interested to learn that if you have macOS Catalina, and I know you do by now, there are a dozen more hidden fonts that are just a download away. Some of these fonts are for other languages, Korean and Arabic, but most are beautiful fonts Apple licensed from prominent font works but didn't actually install, possibly to save space.You can browse them by opening Font Book. When you see a font that's grayed out, you can install it by right-clicking and selecting Download from the menu.I particularly like Canela, Publico, and Quotes. If you're worried about space you can also use font book to delete any fonts you don't want, especially any non-Roman fonts you know you won't need.In the past having too many fonts could slow down machines considerably, but our modern Macs seem to be able to handle the giant library with aplomb. My system has nearly 300 fonts installed. Some of which I added myself. I collect Fixed Width fonts, because, as you know, I like to code. My current favorite programmers' font is the free Input from David Jonathan Ross and Font Bureau.If like me, you love fonts, and if you feel like you have too many, or your Mac boot times are suffering, you can remove all but the official set using the Font book File→Restore Standard Fonts... command. It won't delete your added fonts forever, just move them into a folder. You can re-add them one by one or in one fell swoop at any time. There's also a Validate command that you might use if ever a font gives you trouble. Modern fonts are essentially little programs, and a poorly or maliciously designed font can wreak havoc on your system, so always get fonts from trusted sources, and validate them before installing.And if you ever want to start a conversation with a programmer, just ask her what her favorite coding font is. Then grab a cup of tea, it's going to take some time.For extra typography goodness, I recommend the book "Stop Stealing Sheep" by Erik Spiekermann and E.M. Ginger.And most importantly, a profound thank you to Steve Jobs, whose love for calligraphy got this all started.Leo Laporte gives you helpful tips to get the most from your Mac every week on Hands-On Mac Host: Leo Laporte Download or subscribe to this show at https://twit.tv/shows/hands-on-mac Discuss episodes in the TWiT Community.

What is the Windows Experience Feature Pack? If you get Windows 10 2004, you automatically get this thing. But MS officials won't talk about it... (insert shrug emoji here) Microsoft fixed a blocker issue for the May 2020 Update that brings Windows 10 version 2004 to Surface Pro 7 and Surface Laptop 3.Related: Another Windows 10 Fast Ring build is out today. It has nested virtualization for AMD processors. And a few fixes. That's it.We heard from Keivan Beigi, Mr. AppGet Amazon sues Google over our old buddy Brian Hall FU2, Microsoft! Slack and Amazon partnership is interesting Apple set to announce macOS on ARM - It will succeed where Microsoft and Qualcomm have failed repeatedly. Also, Apple should buy DuckDuckGo, not Microsoft. Using Brave requires trust. And they just blew it. Déjà vu: Now 50 U.S. states want to break up Google. This is a great idea.Hardware is hard. Google sold only 7.2 million handsets in 2019, and most of them were low-end devices. Remember when Microsoft used to sell many more than that? Huawei is at war because of U.S. actions against it. One strategy: Hoarding. Xbox Microsoft launches Digital Direct And whatever happened to that disc-to-digital thing? Sony's PS5 games event is rescheduled to this Thursday New Game Pass games for JunePlus: There's a big Xbox sale right now Tip of the week: Consider powerline networking. Everyone knows about Wi-Fi and Ethernet, but powerline networking provides an interesting middle ground between the two and can work well in some circumstances.App pick of the week: Sumatra PDF. It ain't pretty, but Sumatra PDF is the lightweight and full-featured PDF reader we need. Plus, it works with EPUB as well. Enterprise pick of the week: WVD users: MSIX App Attach is ready for testing. Windows Virtual Desktop users can now test MSIX App Attach.
