Leopard’s Text-to-Speech, guest appearance by Soundwave?

Leopard's Text-to-Speech capabilities are great for visually impaired users. Highlight some text, click the designated trigger key, and your Mac will read the text to you in one of it's many different voices. The default is Alex. But I prefer Zarvox. Off the record, I believe Zarvox is just a cover name. I suspect it's really Soundwave, who having been excluded from the Transformers movie was snatched up from the unemployment line by Apple.
