Program To Read On PC

My Grandad is getting very short sighted but likes to get emails etc from loved ones etc. He is not able to read them now, is there a free progam that will read e-mails, word docs, presentations or anything he may recieve aloud as audio?

Please no suggestions of Skype etc!

I have just briefly tried the Windows 7 Narrator which can be accessed via Control Panel, Ease of Access. It does read emails, even if the voice is a bit robotic. Worth a try if your Granddad has Win 7.

Windows 7
