1. Go to System Preferences, Speech.
2. Go to the Text to Speech tab.
3. Select the Speak selected text when the key is pressed option.
4. Set the preferred keyboard shortcut.
5. Press this key combination each time you want your Mac to read aloud. Don’t forget to select the text you want to be spoken by your Mac.
