Is it possible to trigger Mac’s built-in text-to-speech? I tried Speak but prefer the built in system.
That is built-in but is is an older TTS engine. I don’t know if there is a way for PopClip to directly trigger the newer TTS engine (please let me know if anyone knows a way).
However, you could create your own macOS Shortcut for speaking, and trigger that from PopClip. Here is how to do it: How to run a macOS Shortcut from PopClip
That can be done very easily with the Accessibility settings of Monterey.
First follow the instructions here:
And then this works:
# popclip name: Speak Text icon: square S Key combo: option escape requirements:  #end
