There are many great resources out there that can easily convert text from multiple file types to .mp3 format! This means that you can upload, for example, a word document and it will be converted to an .mp3 file so that you can play it via computer, iPod, or other .mp3 capable device! You can also use most of these types of services to convert files with these extensions: .doc, .docx, .pub, .pdf, .wpd, wps, .odt, and .txt. Some even allow you to convert actual webpages, emails, and even RSS feeds! Here are just a couple of those types of services that you can use for free:
- YakiToMe - www.yakitome.com
- ZamZar - www.zamzar.com
- CarryoutText - www.carryouttext.com (currently in beta)
Also, did you know that Adobe Reader will read any PDF document to you? Simply go the the "View" menu and select "Read Out Loud."
We hope these resources are helpful. Please let us know if you have other resources such as these so we can spread the word! Enjoy!
