If you have a Mac it's a standard option is System Preferences, you can even make it tell a knock knock joke & have it respond to spoken commands, etc.

Yes you can make your computer talk, but I don't know the software, I have a text-to-speech engine loaded, but I dont know if it works with MS Word or something.

You are (or You're) welcome
