I use the file splitter and batch conversion to make my book mp3's, with the eloquence synth. Ten or 12 files for hte average book, 20 minutes each file. It's very nice. ----- Original Message ----- From: Lynn I To: bkshare discussion Sent: Tuesday, December 30, 2008 12:00 PM Subject: [bksvol-discuss] OT: Text Aloud. Hi Everyone, I've made a discovery in Text Aloud. I use it for reading books and then burn them to CD or put them on my MP3 player. I like them to sound as good as possible, and the less time and effort I have to put in to making them sound good, the better. Well, quite by accident, I discovered that if I open a book saved in the web page format htm or html, the results are even better than opening a file saved in txt, or rtf formats. Why this is so, I'm not sure, but it seems that the headers in the htm or html format cause Text Aloud to read almost like a reader would. Just thought I'd pass this along for anyone using Text Aloud so you can experiment. HTH and Happy New Year to all. Blessings. Lynnsky Happy moments, praise God. Difficult moments, seek God. Quiet moments, worship God. Painful moments, trust God. Every moment, thank God.
