Do you find audio books too expensive, and printed text too small to read? If you have a text or word file of a book, you can copy and paste the text and save it as a MP3 file with Clip Speak 1.5 which you can download here: http://www.codeplex.com/clipspeak . It is very easy to use and fast. Clip Speak is perfect for the student who does not like reading, but would not mind listening to an audio version of his notes he took in class. It is also good for learning pronunciation for English although Clip Speak has a monotoned, and robotic voice, so it is not great at listening to. Clip Speak 1.5 is free. If you want a better voice, you have to look for another text to speak software. The file sizes of the MP3 which clipspeak make are also small, so you can fit hours of text-to-speak MP3s on a mid-end MP3 player like the 1-4GB MP3 player,Zune or Ipod.
