2.11.2 Speech Channel Objects

A Speech Channel object allows you to speak strings with slightly more control than SpeakString(), and allows you to use multiple speakers at the same time. Please note that channel pitch and rate are interrelated in some way, so that to make your Macintosh sing you will have to adjust both.

Stop ()

GetPitch ()
Return the current pitch of the channel, as a floating-point number.

SetPitch (pitch)
