AudioDocs Converts MS Word Documents to Audio Files
We all use MS Word files for creating various kinds of official and non-official documents. Have you ever thought of listening to these documents? There is a nice Windows tool called AudioDocs that can convert an MS Word file into an audiobook. AudioDocs is an opensource program that converts DOC/DOCX files into a WAV file.
Although the interface of the app is not so good, it works fine. After downloading it from Sourceforge, run the app. It will only have a single button labeled ‘MS Word to AudioDoc.’ Click on this button to browse the MS Word file from your system that you want to convert into an audio file.
After selecting the source document file, it will show another window with a few more options. You can adjust the speaking rate, volume and TTS (text to Speech) from the list. After selecting these options, click on Create AudioDoc button. In a few seconds, your audiobook will be ready.
This app does not support batch conversion of document files. You can only convert document files into WAV audio format. But the app works really fine. Conversion into an audio file is impressive. The only thing one misses in the app is the lack of MP3 format support because WAV files take too much space. Let’s hope this audio format will be added soon.
The app works on Windows XP, Vista, 7 and Windows 8.
