Apple Script to Audio format

I'm working on an art piece, and part of the narration I want to be the computer voice that you can program Apple Script to do.

You know, whey you'd type in
say: "i love computers" then compile it would play it back.

does anyone know how to convert that into a audio format?

if you're on OSX, you can use the command:

do shell script "say -f /path/to/textfile -o ~/Desktop/outputfile.aiff"

or just use the say command from the terminal window.

in fact, from the terminal:

man say

will get you all your possible options for the say command.
