250 Pages of Listening a Week

California State University, Dominguez Hills has thought of a new way to make life easier for its students: MP3s of reading assignments. A librarian at the school has set up 17 computers on campus to use a scanner and text-to-speech software to create audio versions of readings that can be downloaded to mobile devices. It takes one minute to download three pages, and once downloaded the readers can choose the voice that reads the MP3.

Students at Princeton can recreate this using Kindles, paid versions of Adobe Acrobat and free, public domain literature audiobooks on LibriVox.

Would greater access to audio versions of your reading improve your time management on campus? Would you like access to a system like that at Cal State Dominguez Hills?
