I want it to speak the word without selecting it, just hovering over it + a shortcut. Or by pressing a shortcut after using the lookup feature in Mac.

You can use the following Keyboard Maestro macro:

  1. Add a double click at current mouse location action.
  2. Add a press ⌥⎋ action.
    ⌥⎋ the default shortcut for ‘Speak selected text’, set in System Preferences → Accessibility → Speech. Change this to match the preference at that location.
  3. Set the macro to be triggered on a hot key.

  • Your first step says "Add a double click at current mouse location action." and doesn't that select the word? The OP said "I want it to speak the word without selecting it, just hovering over it...". (Emphasis added.) – user3439894 Jun 6 '17 at 0:04
  • @user Yes, but I took it to mean that OP didn't want to select the word themselves and rather "just hovering over it". – grg Jun 7 '17 at 19:02
