From text to iPod – in one easy step

Use Text2Go to transfer information from the web to your iPod, so you can listen to it on the go. Sound like a gimmick? Maybe, but just think about the educational implications of such a tool for our students – anyone who needs audio support to access and enjoy text.

From Melbourne, this software (for a very small cost) could be used to turn free eBooks available at Project Gutenberg into audio books for your library, to loan out on your ipods or mp3 players.

In fact, anything that might be available in digital format could be converted this way. Are there limitations? I don’t know. The idea is a very good one for schools to look into further.
