Making brian d foy's computer speak

[ #8945 ]

brian d foy wrote a program to make his computer talk. Here's a more efficient version using Mac::Speech (from Mac::Carbon), instead of RunAppleScript/DoAppleScript.

#!/usr/bin/perl
use Mac::Speech;
 
my $voice   = $Mac::Speech::Voice{Victoria};
my $channel = NewSpeechChannel($voice);
for ( reverse ('blast off!', 1 .. 10 ) ) {
    SpeakText($channel, $_);
    print "$_\n";
    sleep 1;
}
sleep 1 while SpeechBusy();
DisposeSpeechChannel($channel);
