Chapter 16. Sound, Movies & Speech

Macs have been capable of handing sound and graphics from Day One, years before the word multimedia was even coined. OS X’s QuickTime technology plays digital movies and live “streaming” broadcasts from the Internet; its speech features let you command your Mac by voice or make your Mac talk back; and VoiceOver is a beefed-up talking-Mac feature for blind people.

This chapter covers it all: how to record sound and video, edit it, play it back—and how to make your Mac talkative.
