I called Amazon about getting text-to-speech on the Kindle for Mac and they said it couldn't be done, but if we could convert the PDF file to put it on the computer out of the kindle app, it might work then. They couldn't (weren't allowed) to give me the name of any converters for Mac so I am wondering if anyone here knows of any converter that can be downloaded which will convert a pdf from Kindle onto the Mac. Hope this is clear!

Isn't a PDF a PDF? Shouldn't any PDF open quite easily in Preview or even in Safari? There's also a Kindle for Mac app in the Mac App Store that you can use to read Kindle purchases on your Mac if that's what you're looking for. I'd imagine after that an app like Macintalk would do the trick.

He has ebooks on the Kindle for Mac and they will not interface with the text-to-speech available on the imac. So Amazon suggested converting the PDF original on Kindle to a PDF on the computer, if that is possible, so that it would be directly on the computer and could be read using the existing text-to-speech that is on the systems preference. So I was wondering if anyone knew how to do that. I looked at the calibre that yeeha mentioned and it says that PDF is a bad input format. It also indicated that it was for transfer to another device, not to the original computer. Would love any other suggestions. Thanks
