    Have you tried to use the Text-To-Speech application?

    Microsoft Text-To-Speech(TTS) voice engine has been installed by default on Windows 2000, XP, Vista, you can find what voice engines have been installed on the computer by following Control Panel->Speech->Speech Properties->Text To Speech tab->Voice selection drop down window. For example, the voice of Microsoft Sam has been installed by default on Windows XP, and Microsoft Anna on Vista, and the voice of Microsoft Anna is of good quality.

    I have downloaded the Text-To-Speech freeware panopreter, now I listen to files with it, it is an easy-to-use application, it also converts files into wave and mp3 files, I think it's better than the Narrator on the Windows XP, Do you think so or do you have any other experience?

    Yes, there are TTS voice engines from other companies, you can get it by search with Google, Panopreter works well with these voices.

    I have never heard of panopreter, but taking a look it is a really nice program. Much better then the windows XP one. Although the windows XP one is really just a plain and simple one.

    For those visually impaired or speech disable, this software is helpful.
