I have decide to release my previously paid app Share to Speech for Windows 8.1 as freemium Lite edition, so that more people can enjoy using it, and hopefully you will find it useful.

It brings text to speech and MP3 at incredible convenience, and even with Lite limitations it still offers more than any such free or paid app on the Windows Store, allowing you to save time and listen to article or documents while doings something else. As it is a universal app, there is also companion version for the Windows Phone, and they work greatly together (e.g. sharing links from one to the other app).

You can find more info and download app on the Windows Store.
