For example, you could go to System Preferences > Speech > Text to Speech > System Voice > Customize, download Javier (Spanish - Mexico) and select that system voice to hear called numbers in Spanish. New voices are free.
Custom Bingo helps you run a Bingo session.

You may select a Winning Pattern from the drop-down menu or you may click on individual pattern cells to make the desired pattern. If the cell is Gray, it will change to Black, and if a cell is Black, it will change to Gray. You can change the Winning Pattern between games and when a game is paused.
