Hmm ...guys I followed your instructions and my audio was totally scrambled
pdftotext narcissus.pdf - | text2wave | lame - narcissus.mp3
Assuming raw pcm input file
LAME version 3.96.1 (http://lame.sourceforge.net/)
CPU features: MMX (ASM used), 3DNow! (ASM used), SSE, SSE2
Using polyphase lowpass filter, transition band: 17249 Hz - 17782 Hz
Encoding <stdin> to narcissus.mp3
Encoding as 44.1 kHz 128 kbps j-stereo MPEG-1 Layer III (11x) qval=3
Cannot load wavefile: /tmp/est_25056_00001
P.S. it sounds like a great feature ...
