Training the Dragon

Having received a brilliant offer for Dragon Naturally Speaking 10 from Serif, I decided to give it a try.
Quickly, I was set up and able to get going, and now I'm typing my blog post with Dragon. I'm curious about the possibilities for people with disabilities.  This software could be handy for me too. So far, I'm impressed! I still have lots to learn and wonder about using with twitter and social networking.

Text2Speech is an easy to use web based application that allows you to create text to an Mp3 file.
There are 4 voices and you can choose the volume setting. It's a fairly basic application but if you need a quick result, could be handy. I uploaded my sample file to a post on our network project and the students had a go at creating their own.
