How about a handy dandy Chrome extension that converts webpages from text to speech in the form of a podcast?

If you are a multi-tasker, then this tool could be for you. Listen to your favorite blog, articles of interest, or research on the web you just don’t have time to read. Instead, play your podcast while taking that walk, driving to work, doing chores or gardening.

install the free Podcastle extension on your Chrome browser, then simply click on its green icon in the top right-hand corner to start listening to the textual content of the webpages you open.
