The Ultra Hal Text-to-Speech Reader application reads documents out loud, e-books, standard Windows dialog boxes, clipboard contents (for emails and web text), and incoming instant messages on AOL, AIM, ICQ and MSN Messenger clients. In addition to speaking text out loud, this program is able to write audio data directly to Windows WAV files. You can convert all your documents and e-books into WAV files and then burn them to audio CDs or convert them into MP3 files.
