computer playback – text to speech

Does anyone know of a good text-to-speech program that has variable speeds? It would be cool to use my own text that I can adjust the speed, make taking more challenging.
Thanks,
Mike

  1. Opps!! I found one. 🙂   http://www.download.com/Ultra-Hal-Text-to-Speech-Reader/3000-7239_4-10329180.html?tag=pdp_prod   It's called Hal Text-to-Speech.  It seems to work pretty well.  It comes with an interesting selection of voices.  Of course, they still sound a bit robotic, but you can expect perfection for a free program 🙂  I do like that the speed is extremely variable.   Does anyone else know of a better program?
