HI Jackie,

I have used TextAloud to convert pdf files to wav files for audio output. I
also purchased 2 AT & T voices that load into TextAloud. The transfer if
easy and, I tested it on a full book that was in pdf format.

I have used Natural Reader and, the main reason I select TextAloud was the
dollar factor ( I think it was $59 while natural reader is $99.
