Listen to your documents on your iPod or iPhone.
iSpeak It is a file-to-audio converter that serves as a perfect companion to the iPod or iPhone. iSpeak It loads Word, PDF, Pages, RTF, AppleWorks, text and HTML documents. It downloads Wikipedia articles, weather forecasts, driving directions, and arbitrary web pages as well as RSS feeds. iSpeak It then uses the Mac's text-to-speech engine (check out our TTS page if you'd like to find better voices) and iTunes to convert the text into an MP3/AAC track containing the text as lyrics (so you can read along as you listen).
Download any web page or RSS/Atom feed. iSpeak It remembers previous feed downloads to ensure you only get entries you haven't heard yet.
