Convert Microsoft Word Documents To Audio Files using AudioDocs

Convert Microsoft Word Documents To Audio Files using AudioDocs

AudioDocs is a free open source project available from the wonderful SourceForge web site. It can read the text from MS Word documents and makes it available as an audio file.

This is a stand-alone app, as opposed to being a plugin for Word. Office previously contained speech to text, though it is now built right into Windows 8 and can be used with several apps.

Convert Microsoft Word Documents To Audio Files using AudioDocs

The app is extremely simple. Once launched you can browse for the file you wish to turn into speech. You then have several options for the voice you wish to record in — all are computerized, of course, so do not expect anything sounding like an audio book here. Options include David, Hazel and Zira. You can also adjust the recording rate and volume, both via slider bars on the screen. Once your choices are made then select the “Create AudioDoc” button at the bottom of the screen.

As the file is created you will hear nothing, but a box will pop up alerting you of completion. The new file, which is in WAVE format, will automatically be saved to the same folder that contains the original document. There are absolutely no options in this program, so you can not choose file type or save location, you will simply need to convert the file and move it on your own, if you so choose.
