? about the best free text to speech software

I see a lot of these things (like Ginger and UltraHal) will read and put the word on the screen in MS Word. But I'm usually proofreading in EPUB. Anybody know of a good free text to speech proofreader that will work with EPUB? Thanks.

I just hit OPTION-ESC and a nice lady named Karen reads my stuff to me. Oh, wait you probably don't have a Mac.. soory. Dunno what Windows users use as it built into the Mac OS.

I use Windows. I chose a product called TextAloud from NextUp. I mainly chose this for the many different voices I could get. In theory TextAloud is supposed to open ePubs, in practice it never seems to work for me, but I don't care that much. I don't edit epub directly other than tidy-up, all text changes happen against my original source. Also I find proof-reading is best done in short doses, so I simply copy an paste one scene at a time into the TextAloud window.
