This script is essential for turning .pdf, .txt, and .dat into .mp3 format using your default festival voice. I had been looking for something to convert ebooks into .mp3 for when i was on the go and this has proven to be the best open source solution available.

Thank you for this script rennau80.

P.S. This will take a long time for larger files such as an ebook for dummies, and if you anticipate having to "seek" in-between chapters then you should convert the original.pdf file into a .txt, and then break it into smaller .txt files for each chapter respectively.
