GhostReader is a document and selection reader used by people with dyslexia, used for language learning and used by people who prefer to listen to text rather than read it. It can read Text, Word, HTML, PDF and RTF documents (plus in Leopard: DOCX and ODT documents) and selected text in almost any application.

GhostReader can convert text to audio files or iTunes tracks with the encoding of you choice. Create your own podcasts or iTunes tracks, ready to load onto your iPod or iPhone. GhostReader includes Infovox iVox voice credits with which you can purchase high quality naturally-sounding Infovox iVox voices.
