Create your own audiobooks

The National Library of Medicine has a piece of software called DocMorph that lets you convert text or images into audio format.
Users may Extract Text from files or use the Reading Room function. The Extract Text feature uses optical character recognition (OCR) to convert scanned images to text. DocMorph's Reading Room allows users to create audio files that may be "read back" to the user using the computer's soundboard and speakers.
Using DocMorph is a little complicated since you have to register and use Internet Explorer, but it's useful for the visually impaired or if you're just tired of reading so much.
