    Just tried CarryOutText and was disappointed.

    It is limited to 150,000 characters, so any decent size book is not going to work unless it is done chapter by chapter.

    Also, it did not recognize the pdf I tried to upload, even though it says it supports pdf.

    It caused my Firefox to crash when I had entered a text file that had more than 150,000 characters.

    Finally, it is only going to be free during its beta.

    I just tested CarryOutText. Although it sounds a little bit choppy (as usual) it is a really helpful site. You don't need to install anything. You can upload a file or type in some text yourself that is converted immediately to an mp3 file which you can then download and carry around (and listen to it e.g. on your daily run).
