Convert my ebooks to audiobooks

I gone through Google and this site, but I had not found any consistent good audio converter, so can all help me out in getting some info about any tool or free online tool available to convert technical ebooks to their audio counterparts.

Has someone ever used Audio Book from Fireebok, I read the review on Softpedia:

I also learned that I can turn ebooks into audiobooks with Siri, can someone tell me how to make the conversion, thanks in advance:

There are a number of text to speech converters, though none which have pleasant voices are free. One very large problem for technical material is filling the program's word list with all the technical terms which will be all but certain to be pronounced almost unrecognizably. Illustrations are also a challenge.

You might look around for the user ALPE, who is familiar with SMIL based books which might be in the direction you need.
