I downloaded a pdf file and was in the car when I really wanted to kill the long drive by reading the article, while in traffic I was hoping to find an app, since apparently there's no built-in feature, that will read selected text to me. Is there such an app or way to do this? I came across the speech feature that will read my texts messages to me but that's not what I am looking for. Any ideas?

Hmm not sure about PDFs, it actually wouldn't be that hard to build one yourself (I don't know if you're a coder or not) juts stream the file and use the speech synthesis class to have it read it back to you! Would be a nice little project but unfortunately couldn't find anything already available!
