Turn Your Documents into MP3 Files

Last Updated Mar 12, 2007 6:39 PM EDT

Now that you know how to turn your voicemails into written documents, it's also cool to be able to do the opposite. MagneticTime is a software app that lets you turn documents and emails into mp3 files for your iPod or handheld so that you can still have access to that information while you're driving, commuting or (God forbid) even working out.

While the robotic voice can sound stilted and the software costs about $40, Geek.com found MagneticTime to be pretty good at what it sets out to do. The review also points out other useful applications for the software, like using the voice files as a study tool for practicing speeches, and as a quick way to turn e-books into audiobooks.
