My go-to programs for simple, versatile, and inexpensive are TextAloud MP3 for Windows PCs ($30 plus $30-35 for separately-purchased human-sounding voices) and GhostReader for Macs ($40, includes human-sounding Cepstral voices).

Subject: [Athen] Favorite Text to Audio Converter

Hello ATHENS folks,

I was wondering if anyone has a favorite text to audio converter they really like. I would like to use it to create audio files of textbook chapters for learners, so I'd like it to convert both Word and PDF files and be reasonably priced. The only one I've ever used is SpokenText.net and I'm curious what others use and like. Thanks for being a valuable source of AT knowledge for this rookie. <smile>
