Another possibility for converting audible books is to use Sound Taxi (do a google search for it.) It's software that allows you to convert DRM'ed audio files to other formats. It's not free, but if I remember correctly it's fairly reasonably priced.

Yes, an ebook reader that will actually read the (text) book to your audibly will be nice. Maybe in 10 years or so. I'm sure audible wouldn't be excited about that though.

Text to Speech programs get better every year, im sure in 10 years most people wouldnt even be able to tell the difference. Im sure they are Programming Cadence into the Generators, and other things..

just like microsoft word whos spell check, is actually not to bad at grammar too, and that gets better ever revision too.

The advantage of stream-ripping is that it will capture ANYTHING
from any source (even demos) so you can bypass extra steps.
I think the simplest solution is to just convert the file and forget
ripping altogether.

.aa to .mp3 and your done.



still want to burn CDs (and your money?)

I don't see .aa files listed as a supported file type.

I also didn't see a Mac version.

here is a guide using a virtual CD burner which would be faster than stream ripping and not waste CDs.

here seems to be a program that can directly rip AA to MP3 for Macs http://www.macsome.com/audio-book-co...ip-to-mp3.html

Like many other problems we have with device support Audible is owned by Amazon. It is unlikely we will see MOBI or Audible on a Sony.

I really think this would be a good feature for Sony to add to the unit. There is quite a bit on the wiki related to this subject. (See audio books or TTS) It would help everyone to have this feature, particularly people trying to learn a language and visually impaired. It would really justify all that audio hardware that gets added to a reader.
