Hello Everybody

I have a lot of text documents that I wish to output into speech 
audio. Firstly I wanted to know if there is any software that would 
allow one to do this. This could be likened to an educational tool 
of sorts that reads a file. 

Secondly I was hoping to change the output of audio by the 
actual content of the text/html page. The actual reading of text 
would be at quite a speed (not necessarily comprehendible) but 
in essence the content itself would create the music - according 
to an adjustable tempo/spec? Maybe each letter could represent 
a music note? 

I am not sure if this makes sense but if possible I would like to 
hear if there are any comments?

MAny thanks for your time and have a good week!
