You need a quick text to speech conversion but you’re lacking the software to do so. No worries, Zamzar—the handy online file conversion tool—has added text to speech conversion.
We’ve covered Zamzar before for its handy file conversions, including the recent addition of a power point to image conversion. The newest trick in the Zamzar conversion bag is the ability to turn TXT, PDF, Word, Works, WordPerfect and OpenOffice document files into speech. You won’t get back a silky smooth reading of the text presented by a professional actor, but it will sound better than a robot. If you don’t need text to speech, Zamzar has a host of other conversion options like turning your Word document into a PDF among dozens of other combinations. The service at Zamzar is free, with a 100MB file size limit—which shouldn’t pose much of a problem with text files.
