PDF to MP3 conversion: an alternative method to reading academic papers

By Dorian Miller

Abstract

The PDF to MP3 project provides alternative access to academic documents for the blind, weak readers and others. Using an MP3 player the person listens to a synthesized reading of the paper. The audio is divided into tracks and read in multiple voices to accommodate the listener’s navigation and comprehension. The developed software performs the PDF to MP3 conversion using the Python programming language and third party components.
