I have just started a new position and am getting bombarded with documentation from white papers to company policies, etc, etc…  I commute via bus for an hour each way, so I had an Aha moment. I thought wouldn’t it be nice to convert documents to mp3s to listen on my player instead of carrying paper around and wasting trees.  So the search yesterday took me to all sorts of “hacks” but no real solution for a tool that will convert word or pdf files to mp3s in one step. 

Your comments on good tools are welcome.
