There is a script step called Speak() which only works with Mac OS. You simply put the text to be spoken or a field or variable reference and it will speak it using the default voice or a specified voice.

Tells the user to enter a company name if the Company field is empty. Can be started by the OnRecordCommit, OnLayoutExit, or OnWindowClose script triggers.

If [IsEmpty ( Contacts::Company )]
      Speak ["Enter a company name"]
End If

Speaks the contents of the Summary field in the current record.

Go to Layout ["Invoice Details"]
Speak [Invoices::Summary]

On Windows you can use the Monkeybread Plugin "Speak" function to do the same thing.  https://www.mbsplugins.eu/SpeechSpeak.shtml
