Is there a program to convert a document (formats below) to an audio file (formats below)?

I need:

  • it to be <£20 (preferably free)
  • it to convert from .doc, .docx, .pdf, and .txt (txt is optional)
  • it to produce a .mp3 and .wav file
  • run on Windows 7 64 bit and, preferably OSX 10.6.8 (Snow Leopard)
  • it to have an English UK accent with male and female voices
  • How about text-to-speech program? Nov 24, 2014 at 19:58

    @FranckDernoncourt Kind of - but I just want to browse for a file, and automatically get an mp3 file (or wav) outputted - nothing else, nothing less :) Nov 24, 2014 at 20:03

On OSX, you can select text, right click the selection, and choose "Add to iTunes as a Spoken Track." From there you can view the sound file in finder and do whatever you want with it.

  • Looks like you must select text to do this! Do you know of any solutions by just using the file? Sorry for the extremely late reply! Dec 23, 2014 at 17:44
