Expressivo

Setup is a breeze: Install the program, and you're ready to go. You can run Expressivo, and then point it at documents, or use its integration with applications like Web browsers (only Firefox and IE) and Microsoft Word to have it do its reading. There are plenty of extras to make this program useful, such as the ability to bookmark sections so that you can jump back to them immediately. And you can turn any text into an audio file that you can later listen to on a portable MP3 player.

Bear in mind that during the trial period, you'll hear faint elevator music in the background when text is read aloud. Needless to say, this auditory watermark gets a little annoying. You'll also be encouraged occasionally to purchase a full copy.

Note: This link takes you to the vendor's site, where you can download the latest version of the software.
