An important accessibility issue is file conversion–being able to convert text files to speech files, say, for the benefit of people with visual or learning disabilities, or to take files from a digital recorder and turn them into a format that voice recognition software can parse. Zamzar is a new, free online service that can take files up to 100 MB, convert them into a wide variety of text, audio, graphic, video, and other formats, and email you the results. Pay a bit, and it’ll handle files up to 1 GB, plus give you some online storage space. We have it on impeccable authority that the results are “pretty good.”
