It seems to work for me with Reader 7.0.8.  The technical documents that
I tried posed a few problems with equations.  Also, the audio could not
differentiate between upper and lower case letters, such as Fb and fb.

Still, could be useful somewhere.

I guess it doesn't work with Reader 7.0!

  If you open a pdf document in Adobe Reader 6, turn
  your speakers on, you can have the text contents read
  out to you.

  Ctrl-shift-v reads the current page
  Ctrl-shift-b reads the whole document
  Ctrl-shift-e stops reading
  Ctrl-shift-c resumes reading.

  I tried it.
  It works fine.

  I'm now wondering what to do with this discovery and
  how to use it.
  Any suggestions?
