FlameReader takes the text you provide and turns it into spoken words. It can read text out loud, it can turn text into an MP3 file that you can put on a mobile music player, and, via the PowerReader function, it can read any piece of text you highlight. So if you would much rather listen to spoken words than read text, go get FlameReader.
