I know that Mac OS X 10.12 (aka Sierra) was been out for a while, but I’m still getting used to some of the subtle changes. With Siri’s voice recognition technology now included as a standard feature, it seemed odd that the list of synthesized voices that could be installed and played back in earlier iterations of OS X were nowhere to be found. Or, at least that’s what appeared at first glance.
When I am evaluating whether to upgrade my Mac’s operating system, I naturally assume that any new release will have more features and improved functionality. If you are a Mac user running a discontinued yet perfectly usable OS like Mountain Lion 10.8 and have come to rely upon Disk Utility in your arsenal of everyday tools, you may be unpleasantly surprised at the menu options that are no longer available in Sierra 10.12.
