Making my computer talk (with the say command)

I've been using the say command in terminal to get my computer to talk, ie.

say "Hello" 

How can I pipe the text of a .txt file to the say command to get it to read aloud the text in a file ?


Actually say has this option

say -f file.txt

Or you can use command substitution...

say $(cat file.txt)

this passes the output of cat file.txt as an argument to say
