well I looked the say part up in the mac scripter forum
There is a wealth of information and code on that forum.
´say´ is part of the scripting additions.
And yes, Applescript is at times 'underdocumented', as is the Quicktime
player Pro, I do a lot of basic stuff in the Quicktime Player, but it is up
to the user to find out how.

Once Richard gets this going he can choose a voice he likes with the say
command and let that voice speak the text. Since 10.5 there is a high
quality voice 'Alex' which sounds pretty naturally, I think it is the
default voice for 10.5
