Do you prefer to learn by listening?

Library staff have evaluated a range of ‘text-to-speech’ tools, many free, that can translate written text (PDF, URL, emails etc) to speech.

Sample the voices first to find one you like to listen to. Then copy and paste the text (journal article, book chapter) and the software will generate an MP3 or WAV file for listening while you’re travelling, commuting or anywhere on the go.

Slide to the bottom of the page to see ‘text to speech’ apps for smartphones and ipad.
