This newer AppleScript scripting seems to work better in Monterey…
say "It looks like this is working with an updated term called speaking rate" using “Alex” speaking rate 250 pitch 42 modulation 60
Issue : I think my problem is with the RANGES of pitch (maybe per voice?) - if the pitch number is too low or hi for a particular voice - then it has an error.
Q: So is there some way to know the pitch ranges (from xx to xx...) of each Mac Voice like Alex and Susan etc?
