I've just found something that is quite cool, and potentially useful : Talkr. From its FAQ : " Talkr provides a service that allows you to listen to your favorite text-only news sources rather than read them. Point us to an RSS feed and we will convert it from text to speech."

Basically it generates an MP3 from a blog post, and the result is decent (or at least it seems decent to my ears :). Adding an automatic link to each Talkr'ed post on one's blog would be extremely easy. You can even generate an RSS feed containing the required MP3 enclosure to make your blog a real podcast.

For example, register for free and listen to this older post : Offline for a Month.
