TextAloud is a Windows program for turning articles and other documents into MP3 or WAV files. It utilizes voice synthesis to create audio from text.

How to use

To begin using the utility you can paste the text into the main window or open any document. Controls for the voice speed, pitch and volume are provided. It is possible to begin reading from the start or from the cursor position.

The tool uses voices and languages provided in the operating system. Windows by default contains two options for English – male and female. Users can purchase additional voices on the TextAloud website.
