Computer-voiced MP3 read-aloud

David sez, "Yahoo Group's Hard SF group chose Little Brother as the book to read and discuss in December. I could not read the 'dead tree' edition, as I'm visually impaired. I took advantage of your Creative Commons license, and generated MP3 files from the .txt file. The synthetic voice is one of the better ones, however to limit the file sizes I created them at 64Kbs. At that rate the voice is on the flat side, but not 'computer sounding'. I posted the files to archive.org."

Fantastic! And just a reminder, there's a remixable, DRM-free audiobook from Random House Audio available here.
