Windows 7: Scanned documents to Audio for Blind Colleague

Scanned documents to Audio for Blind Colleague

Hi all

Anybody know of some hardware that I can test for a BLIND colleague.
What I want basically is to be able to scan some books and convert the text into some sort of sound to create audio CD's without having to read the entire book / document.

I can edit out errors afterwards - he can stand the sound of my voice OK (surprisingly).

Is there "any such animal" out there. I've absolutely NO experience with this type of hardware and the usual government agencies are totally useless on this sort of stuff.

Any links etc - much appreciated.
