I'm not quite sure what you mean. All the techniques in this article have always worked in MacOS X, and
in general, scripting is easier on X than on 9.
One technique new to MacOS X which you might not be aware of yet is the /usr/bin/say command line tool (type "man say" for documentation).
That doesn't seem to be a huge improvement over the "say" command built into AppleScript:
say "[[pbas 55; rate 100]] twinkle" using "Fred"
say "[[pbas 50; rate 30]] twinkle" using "Fred"
The difference between 60 and 100 in speaking rates can be fairly subtle for a single word, and if you're using MacOX X 10.2 or 10.3, the "pitch" parameter is not functional (it is functional again in 10.4).
Use /usr/bin/say or AppleScript "say" and embedded commands.
Everything documented for MacOS 9 in this regard should also work in MacOS X.
