  3. Start Firefox and go to File, Open File. Then choose the file you just downloaded in the previous step.

  4. Click the "Install Now" button on the window that pops up.

Note 1: If you have not upgraded to Leopard yet, you will need to download and install this extension as well after you have installed Fire Vox. Please consider upgrading to Leopard as the Leopard TTS is stabler and provides better sounding speech.

Note 2: The Mac TTS was developed and tested on Intel Mac OS X machines. It might not work for PPC-based Macs. If the Mac TTS does not speak on your Mac, please try using Java FreeTTS as an alternative.
