    Anyone use it? I started to scan in a lot of my books and is there any to convert the file into an audiobook? Or is there anyway I can take a book I have and convert that to an audiobook. Thanks.

    (Generally, the best way of creating an audiobook is reading it out yourself! This method below gets the computer to read it out for you in its default voice)

    I can't say i'm familiar with Delicious Library, but if you have something in a plain text file, you can get mac OS to read it using the 'say' command:

    1. Open up terminal
    2. type "say -f " (note space at end)
    3. Drag the plain text file you want to speak from finder onto the terminal window
    4. add " -o mybook.aiff"

    This reads the plaintext file and saves it as mybook.aiff

    If that's too complex, you may find your book has already been released on one of these free sites:
