Re: audio books, check out Nuance products that covert text to speech
For now, you could always check out Nuance.com. They have two products that take a text file and convert to speech. As the Wave series is online, you could always copy and paste and save the file as an audible format. Two of their programs will do it, the PDF Professional and the Omnipage standard.. it's just an automated voice so not wonderful but I've tried it on a few pages and it was fine.
