ZamZar turns Documents into MP3s!

Zamzar - Video Converter, Audio Converter, Image Converter, eBook Converter
Yes, you read that right... ZamZar can convert text documents into MP3s!!  Now, if this is not news to you, then I apologize.... But it was fantastic news to me!!  I have a large number students with IEPs this year and this is going to help quite a bit.  

All you do is go to ZamZar, upload your document, choose MP3 and wait for an email with the link to download your file!!  Now, it is not perfect (think about the two different ways to say the word "read") and it sounds like Stephen Hawkings but it is a whole lot easier than trying to record the document myself!!

I only tried it with a Word document so if anyone tries it with other types of documents (or have had success with other types of documents) please pass on the good information!!!

By the way, I found this out looking through the site called 21things4teachers. If you have never looked at it, it is worth a look!
