Why does OSX Text to Speech occasionally garble/skip words on me?

In order to reduce eyestrain when on the computer, I use the basic OSX (10.6.8) Text to Speech (System Prefs -> Speech -> Text to Speech) software for the computer to read out long-form articles found online. This works great! Except....sometimes when I ask "Alex" to read out to me it will skip or garble words from the highlighted article, usually one word per sentence or after x number of words. Why?

How to record and transcribe Skype conversation

What technology and software I should look at inorder to be able to record interviews on Skype on to my hard disk (MacBook Pro) and then be able to manipulate the recording easily in order to type out a transcript? Or, preferably , find reliable speech recognition software that will automatically produce a written transcript I can enter into my word processing program (Open Office.) ? I'm willing to change up software and able to spend no more than $100 to make this work. Is it possible?

How to create text-to-speech in Adobe Flash?

I'm trying to create a Flash application that will accept user-inputted text, then turn it into cheesy computer-generated speech. I'm hoping there's a Flash library or pre-built application that does this, but I haven't been able to find such a thing. I would prefer the final app be in Flash, but I am open to other solutions. Cost not an issue.
