    Any good software to convert a pdf file to audio. please suggest.

    i tried a freeware audiobook maker but it doesn't read as per the layout in certain areas because it converts the pdf to text and the layout goes away.

    Adobe has a read aloud feature and it reads out correctly but no option to export to audio.

    zamzar uses a robotic voice and not as per the pdf layout. i have the required text to speech voice.

    one manual method is to use the adobe text aloud feature along with a sound recorder software. This consumes a lot of time. i tried a one page pdf sample and the output is good.
