Google Speech Maker

"Read&Write for Google Chrome users have yet another reason to be excited about the literacy support toolbar used by over 4.5 million students and teachers in classrooms across the globe. Today we’re excited to announce several new updates available for immediate use, including the ability to create audio files, customize your toolbar, and more!

Now students (and their teachers) can select text from any Google Document or Web page and turn it into a MP3 audio file with a single click! 

This is great for students who are on the go, or prefer listening over other methods of consuming text. It is also great for instructional purposes where students are paired with a book and can follow along as they listen through their earbuds."
