Here is a code that works fine for PC. Hope it'll work for you..

def op():
    global TXT, L
    filepath = tkFileDialog.askopenfilename(filetypes=[("Text Files","*.txt")])
    if(len(filepath) == 0):
        return 0
    F = open(filepath,'r')
    TXT = F.read()
    F.close()
    filename = filepath.split("/")
    filename = filename[-1]
    L.config(text=filename+": "+filepath)

def play():
    global TXT
    audio.say(TXT) ##Used as mentioned
    print "said"
    

from Tkinter import *
import Tkconstants, tkFileDialog

import audio ##used as mentioned

TXT = ""

root = Tk()
root.title("Read that Out!!")

L = Label(text="No File Selected!",width="35",fg="black",bg="white")
L.grid(row=1,column=1)

F = Frame(root)
F.grid(row=2,column=1)

Button(F,text="Open File",command=op).grid(row=1,column=1)
Button(F,text="Read File",command=play).grid(row=1,column=2)

root.mainloop()
