Convert text into downloadable MP3s you can bring with you

Everybody says you can't take it with you. That may be true, if we're talking about money and possessions at the time of the Last Roundup. But what about looking at a slightly shorter timeline?

Read The Words is a free service that lets you easily translate text into speech so that you can carry it along with you. After signing up for a free account, you can upload your text as a Word DOC, a PDF, web pages, or even an RSS feed. Choose from one of fifteen readers and your text—in English, Spanish, or French—will be translated into the spoken word in about a minute.

Once you've done that, you can listen to your text online, download it as an MP3 for your iPod or phone, post it to your blog, or even create your own podcast.
