Using Mac OS X Text to Speech to generate MP3 added to iTunes

I can setup Leopard to start "reading" the selected text when I press a given key combination. Instead of reading the text, I would like the output to be saved in an MP3 file, and if possible have that file automatically added to iTunes. Is there any way to do this with Leopard, or with some third party software?

Yesterday I went through the list of iTunes plugins and I found this one:

Hope this does the job. Haven't tried myself, though.

Pretty nice, thank you. I was looking for a way to use a shortcut for this, but this is better than nothing. I.e. select an article in your web browser, press some shortcut, and have the TTS run on the text and generate an MP3 added to your library.

PeterisMac,

If you don't mind, I will keep this open for a little longer to see if others have additional comments.
