by Samuel Sennott


Previously I wrote a post covering online text to speech recording called Listening to Research as MP3 Files on Your iWhatever.  Today, I got word of a very powerful tool of this genre called ReadTheWords.  It not only is quick, has a smooth graphic user interface, the ability to embed your recording, but it also has an option to have an avatar read your text.

Check out some information from their site:
