I have a few long text files on my mac that I'd liked to listen to as audio. Ideally I'd like to generate mp3s (or something that could be converted into that format) from the text files. The only way I can think of doing this is to have the mac read (using the text-to-voice command) some long document while an audio program is recording. The drawback of this is that it would take quite awhile for the robot dude to get through any given file.
So my question is this: Does anyone know of a method, or of a separate piece of software (for mac or windows) that can skip the reading step - just take a text file, process it, and output an audio file.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
