Online Text to MP3 Converters

pc and iPod for text to mp3 audio conversions
iPod for Text Sounds
Easily convert text to audio on online websites, including to mp3 format for you to hear. Include typed text, copied (cut/paste), or uploaded to the application. This can include lengthy study notes, downloaded eBooks, emails, rss feeds, online books, file uploads (in different formats) and work documents. Then save and play the audio version later, perhaps when relaxing, commuting about, studying at home, or when exercising. Maybe learn a new language, proof read, or just entertainment. Students with learning disabilities may well benefit with speech conversion software. The Calgary Board of Education and Alberta Education researched a project utilizing speech software to evaluate the benefits for the learning disabled. Positive impact of students with reading comprehension was observed, increased self confidence, motivation, and improved work quality and enjoyment as documented in their project report.

Depending on features for basic free plans, audio output maybe sufficient for your needs, but their are choices, of which some may suit. Otherwise a upgrade may be in order. Perhaps test and compare some of the following text to audio converters available on the Internet.

vozMe
