lyrics in MIDI You can add a lyric track to midi files they come out as .kar files. it's basically karoake (sp?) As for adding speech to midis I used a program called "vocal writer" or something like that, on my old mac, it was pretty cool, but it's old and doesn't have many other features. Harmony Assistant has "virtual singer" and works in OSX, it's good because it also has many more features when it comes to songwriting. With a lot of tinkering, you can get it to sound like real speech, but it takes a lot tweaking. If you are really desperate, you can use a program like Cubase and add an audio track on top of a sequence with midi.
