You sure come up with unusual questions, Dotan.  PDF to MP3.  I'm shaking my 
head in bemused disbelief.

I don't see how to turn on this text to speech gadget in KPDF, so I'm not sure 
where to start playing.  I'd be shocked if there were an existing solution 
out there already, but it's probably possible to string some things together.

Stay tuned.  I have PDF to text to speech automated, and I'm working on a 
hands off recorder.  This could actually work.
