Keep History

This option will save time and speed up your work if you need to recognize many texts from different sources. Each new piece of text will be added to the overall history. Paste text into the editor whenever you like. The data does not disappear if you restart your Mac, but can be permanently deleted if you click Clear History. Note: its undo-able action.

Text to Speech

When enabled turns any recognized text to speech. It is great addition for people who have trouble reading text on their screens. To tweak voice options navigate to System Preferences > Accessibility > Speech.
