    I think Microsoft Sam (the default MS reader) can read out the .DOC
    Similar (but feminine voice) exists on the Acrobat too for reading out the PDF files.

    Dude, you dont need any additional software for it.
    Its inbuilt in Windows and Acrobat.

    How do you open .DOC and .PDF files anyway?
    I hope you are using Acrobat reader for .PDF and MSWord for .DOC

    Though the tool is present in MS Windows, I couldn't find its implementation in MS Word, however, I can find it in MS Excel.

    Acrobat Reader is a freeware.
