Sometimes, my eyes will get tired after reading too many emails or web pages for a long time on PC screen. Therefore, I was thinking if I could find a text to speech or text to voice software to convert text to MP3 or WAV audio files and then listen it with my Nexus S phone. Now I found the solution to convert any text into audio files – 2nd Speech Center.
2nd Speech Center is a powerful text to speech software that can open and read various file types such as word file (.doc), PDF (.pdf), Email (.eml), RTF (.rtf) and HTML files. The best feature that I love is converting text file into audio files. Just click on Speak icon and select Speak to File to save the text into MP3 or WAV file.
