To get going double-click the app and when prompted type in the word for which you would like to hear the definition spoken.

Its basic but i’m jusssst gettin’ to grips with Automator.

Mac OS X Automator Adventures – an app that speaks one’s IP Address

I know, this is completely useless… unless you have a use for it, that is.

I was home alone and a little bit bored so i decided to play around with Mac OS X’s Automator. Stuck for something do i though it would be nice to have an app that would speak one’s Mac’s IP address out loud. I know, who’d have thought that computers would be used to speak? 🙂 Anyway, I’ve never used Automator before and was surprised how easy it was to use.
