Alexander Wilson Studios today announced the release of AudioBookMaker 2.0, an upgrade to the Jaguar-exclusive utility that converts text files to audio files using Jaguar’s built-in text-to-speech abilities. The resulting audio files may be then dragged into iTunes, used for multimedia projects, converted to MP3, and even carried with users on their iPods. Version 2.0 adds approximate words-per-minute control, allowing users to increase the speed of speech and decrease file size and length. Users may also now control the length of preview and choose whether to have numbers read normally (“100” as “one-hundred”) or as digits (“100” as “one-zero-zero”). AudioBookMaker is US$2.50 shareware.
