I made this app called SimpleSpeaker, its basically a quick way to generate speech by typing it into the box. There is a rate control, and a combobox to let you choose any voices that's on your system. There's a menu bar too, but its mostly useless. I plan to put help stuff in there, the help section isn't really connected to anything, so none of the options in there actually work, the Exit option in the file menu works, though you can just Alt-F4 out of the app if you wish. It is probably more than likely that you can break this app as there is really no error checking, but if you use it in the way its meant to be used, etc.
I've not allowed enter to speak the text because the box I put there is a multiline box, so I added ALT P to speak, or you can just tab to the button

Fixed some issues where controls weren't reporting their function to the screen reader. Added labels above each control for blind impaired. Added a menu bar at the top, not much there, but under file, you can exit the program this way, and under help, there is an About menu item which opens up an informational dialog you can review with normal reading keys.
