ConvenienceWare and AssistiveWare on Tuesday released GhostReader (formerly TextParrot) 1.1.1, an update to their text to speech software for Mac OS X. A free update for registered users, GhostReader costs US$39.95 to register.

GhostReader lets you listen to your documents in naturally sounding voices in a language of your choice.

The software supports a variety of languages, including U.K. and U.S. English, French, German, Italian, Icelandic, Spanish and much more.

New to the 1.1.1 release is the ability to export audiobooks to a format that's ready for transferring to an iPhone or iPod using iTunes 7's AAC format. It's also been updated for Apple's forthcoming Mac OS X v10.5 "Leopard" release, improves PDF export, boost performance when working with long texts and makes other changes.

A Universal binary, GhostReader requires Mac OS X v10.4 or later.
