In case you need a program to read out the text on your screen or in some documents including word and pdf files, you should try out Text Aloud. It is absolutely fabulous. You can also get the program to make an mp3 file of any text you want and store it on your computer to play back later or email it or put it on your website as I have done for some pages.
