Review: Toau for Mac turns text into audio files for convenient playback

Convert text from documents or Web pages into playable audio files with this wonderful app.

Toau for Mac offers a great solution for converting any amount of text to audio for playback at any time from anywhere. This application will be of great use if you are looking for a free tool to convert text to audio with an option to save the output quickly.

Toau for Mac downloads quickly and operates without any installation. This light, little app comes with a delightful interface that makes text-to-audio conversion easy. You begin by importing the text you want to convert through the menu bar, or by copying/pasting or typing it in the text box. The only three buttons available in the menu are used to play, stop, and export the audio file. During our tests, the playback was smooth and well paced. As for the voice, this program uses the default system voice set on your Mac. The program managed to successfully export all text files used for testing to AIFF format audio files with just the click of a button. We tried converting text files of different sizes and each conversion was done almost instantaneously.

All in all, Toau for Mac exceeds expectations. It's a great solution for converting text to audio quickly and accurately, into a format that other audio players can render.
