Problem with OS X's text to speech

Problem with OS X's text to speech

Postby scottm on Wed Aug 22, 2012 3:40 am

I would love to switch to using Sublime Text 2. However, I have one issue that I need help with before I can use it. I'm visually impaired and use Apple's "Speak selected text when key is pressed" option in the Speech preference pane. When I hit my key combo it only reads back the title bar of the current window, not the text that's selected. Is there anyway this could be fixed? I use the text to speech quite frequently.

Thanks,
Scott Martin

I have the same problem (though I did buy a license). It would be very helpful to have this fixed for people that require this feature.

Have you tried the version 3 beta? Does it still have this problem?

I just released a plugin for Sublime Text 2 that will take care of this for the most part. If anyone needs this functionality, check it out at:

Thanks scottm,

This works great in ST3 beta (3062) under OS X 10.9.

I assigned a different key binding as the default OS X one ignores the selected text and reads from the top of the document.
