    Hey guys, I am a student and take notes from books/tests in a giant google doc. I was wondering if there are any apps that "read" these notes to me so that I could listen to my own notes on my commute or while exercising, etc. It doesn't necessarily have to read the google doc itself, as I could convert to a pdf, text file, email, or whatever is necessary. Thanks guys!

    VoiceDream app is quite good for text-to-speech. It can connect to your Google Drive account, but I'm not sure if it can read the Google Document format. It definitely reads PDFs and Word documents.

    Your iOS 6/7 device also has text-to-speech built in, where you can ask it to "speak selection". Works in most apps, though it does require selecting the text manually.
