    Dragon Naturally Speaking... the preferred edition... Version 10.

    I use it all the time and bang out articles in no time flat all day long.

    Retail price is a little under 200.00 and if you have a previous version there is
    a 50.00 rebate available right now.

    I second that. I just read a review about it from someone else, who actually used it to post on a forum. And it's good for those who don't want to type things out all day. Or if you are not proficient with speed in typing.

    I just did a search on here to see if there is a free download in the download section or where one can be obtained for free.

    I think asilent is asking for a text-to-speech program and not a speech-to-text program.

    You know I didn't catch that... he wanted a speech to text program. We have communicated via PM a couple of times.

    His english is not real good and maybe that is why he made the error in asking for the right kind of program.

    I'm an idiot which is why I didn't catch the inversion.

    I asked text to speech program, but Dragon Naturally Speaking as adviced by theleadsource, can read text as well as transcibe speech to text.
    Please post any other text-to-speech programs that you may know.

    Try VocaTalk. This app turns any content into mp3 or podcast episodes with background music and binaural beats. If you're listening on iPod or Zune, that's exactly what it's designed for although it can read text that you paste into its editor.

    Here's the home page: http://www.vocamedia.comhttp://www.sevenforums.com/#
    And here's a sample episode: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5O4sIh8nWHE
