There's also BrowseAloud, but my understanding is these types of services should be used as a last resort as most users that need this service already have a preferred text-to-speech software installed on their workstations for use (rather than having one forced on them by the institution.)

Subject: [Athen] online text to speech

Is anyone familiar with the online speech to text service Readspeaker? I happened to run across the DSS website at Ohio State and they are using this to read the content of their web site. I want to make our school's website accessible with the speaking option, but this is the only service I have seen in use so far (and it sounds expensive). I also am curious if there is anything else out there that can do this for a low cost or even free.
