    Hello,

    I'm wondering if there is any technology out there for convert a physical book into an audio book. Currently, I can scan each page of a book with my scanner, convert the image to a text file, then get a text reader to convert it to audio. I could also take pictures with my phone or a camera, like this guy:



    But the hard part is taking the initial pictures or scans. It's very time consuming and tedious. So I'm wondering if there is a machine that can do this quickly, something on the market that's relatively affordable to a regular consumer like me.
