    I know I'm very late to reply to this thread but I hope it'll help Googlers who are searching for similar answer. So, have you guys tried Firefox add-on Text to Voice ? It is very simple, light but yet powerful add-on. You may download it from AMO website using the link below:

    Text to Voice worked perfectly after the install. I have tried and worked on getting many of the others to work but no luck. This one was soooooo easy to install and get to work. Finally!!!! Use Text to Voice add on along with the Readability add on and selecting text is super easy, You need to select text so Text to Voice can read. Wish there was a way to adjust the speed of the reader and not to read a period as a dot, just skip it but hey at least it works.

    Seems like the Text to Voice has some problems if you select too much text for it Cd and it to read. It works but not very practical for reading lots of text at once. I did download and run Vinux from its LiveCD and although the voice is really robotic but it reads your desktop, where your mouse is and webpages. Just wish the voices were better.

    What version of Firefox are you currently running? I tried all day yesterday to install QuickSpeak on 11.04 and it said it was incompatible with my 4.0 version of Firefox.

    I downloaded an older version of firefox but I couldn't get it to install on Ubuntu. Is there some sort of trick or are you stuck with the firefox that comes with your Ubuntu?

    Is there anywhere I can download an older version of Ubuntu that will support ClickSpeak?

    I am at a loss of what to do. I been using Readplease since the year 2000 which only runs on Windows XP. Why does it seem like operating systems and browsers are being built so as not to support these types of programs? Before I discovered Readplease my eyes would tire after reading 20 pages. Since Readplease I've been able to easily listen to over 200 pages a day for the past 12 years. It seems barbaric to have to give that technology up under the guise of progress.
