I found a few links resulting in a 404 error (namely around macOS Zoom)
just recently. The pages I was linking to were Apple Support pages and
heavily referenced Sierra and High Sierra. Given the recent release of
macOS Mojave, these may have been removed.
You can still use the Speech functionality in macOS via the right-click
menu or by setting up a hotkey command (under System Preferences >
Accessibility > Speech).
There are also the accessibility shortcut keys page that references other
tools in macOS:
I suspect there will be additional information at some point.
