If you have Microsoft Office, try the open source Microsoft Word add-in , which works with Word 2003, 2007 and 2010. This lets you select "Save as DAISY" from the Word menu and then "Full DAISY". This will save your RTF (Rich Text Format) or other document as an XML ebook and a synchronised MP3 audio file created using Microsoft's TTS software and the LAME encoding engine.
This is where it gets interesting. Try running the example and see how nicely this works. By supplying the SpeechSynthesizer with something more than just a text string, we can get a lot of control of how the various parts of the sentence are spoken.

SoundGecko has apps for leading mobiles – Apple, Android, Windows Phone – and can sync files to Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft SkyDrive. It's much simpler to create an MP3 from an RTF text file by using "Save as" from Word, but SoundGecko may appeal if you like the voicing and/or you're listening on a phone. The major catch would be if you needed any of the pro features, which cost $2.95 per month.

At the beginning, I said text-to-speech was "easy to do at a simple level". The problem is that it's very hard to do well. We have come a long way from flat robotic voices, but still don't have synthetic human voices that provide the right pronunciation, intonation and cadence over a wide range of topics. You just have to find the one you like best.
The LumenVox TTS Server provides Text-to-Speech synthesis, turning written text into spoken speech. This technology allows any computer or IVR application to convey information to a user providing an accurate and affordable means of speech enabling your telephony platform or software application.

As you appreciate, TTS is also part of Microsoft Windows, where it is currently used by Narrator to provide screen-reading facilities for people with impaired vision. In Microsoft Office 2010 and 2013, Speak is built into Word, Outlook, PowerPoint, and OneNote. There are also lots of separate programs that either use Microsoft's SAPI (speech application programming interface) and Speech Platform software or bring their own TTS system.

Text-to-speech (TTS) is easy to do at a simple level, and Texas Instruments started making speech synthesis chips – as used in its Speak & Spell toy – in the late 1970s. TTS then became common in computers during the next decade, starting with the Atari 1400XL home micro in 1983. (The Texas Instruments TI-99/4A did it before then, but only with its optional plug-in speech synthesiser module.)
