Read Me a Book was developed to help users make audio clips from books so that they can listen to a book using iTunes.
Read Me a Book was developed to help users make audio clips from books so that they can listen to a book using iTunes. The book can be broken up into parts so that the audio clips are reasonably sized. The user can set the voice and speaking rate used by the audio clips. Read Me a Book is $10 shareware. A Demo Mode is provided to let the User save up to five Parts without registering.
When you launch Read Me a Book, you see the above window. Click on "Get a Book" in the menubar to go to one excellent source of book texts, choose a book and download the Plain Text file with us-ascii encoding and no compression. Copy just the book portion (do not include text above and below the book) and paste into a TextEdit file. Select "Plain Text" from the TextEdit Format menu and save as a UTF-8 text file with the file title being the book title and use ".txt" file suffix.
