Hi Cely

How is my godson doing? Nice boy? Hope so, of course he is -  he has a super virtual godmother.
About your question, I think you need a converter - text to audio.
I know some of those mentioned above, but I prefer this one:

www.xtranormal.com

It has animation, too, but if you need just the audio, you can leave the animation aside. I use it for both things, even my students use it. I think the sound is fairly good.
Meanwhile, check your pm.

I have no news, yet, keep waiting,

Hi!

With this converter you can upload word or pdf files, paste text or link to feeds. It īs 100% free and you don īt need to dowload a software. The documents are converted into mp3 files to download and send by email or to listen in your ipod or cell phone:

Have a nice day / evening!

They are all great sites and I have tried a few.
 
In the end I always end up making the recording myself for students anyway.
 
The purported īBest synthesised voices yet ī still aren īt quite good enough ... yet!!!!
 
 
 
However ... personally my foreign friends and I have a great time translating and pasting messages, then sending the mp3 file to each other as messages!!!
 
HA!
