On Tammy's Technology Tips for Teachers, I was introduced to a neat, little device called vozMe. You can type in text and it will turn into speech. It has a choice of female or male. It does sound a little computer sounding but is fun. VozMe has different languages as well. It is also an iGoogle tool.
I cut and pasted one of my student's writing pieces and we listened to his story. It was great little addition to publishing that piece.
So, try it! Copy and paste one of your blog posting and listen to your own blog!
On Tammy's page, there is Magic Pen. A phyiscs-engineering-G.T.-kind-0f-game.
