Website That Says Spanish Text - Text to Speech

I must be getting dafter as I get older! Yesterday I was looking at a website wherein you could type in English text and then select from a drop-down menu a choice of various regional Spanish and Latin-American spoken accent translations.

Then like fool I logged-off without recording the link and now I can't find it for love nor money. It was really interesting - there were many laguages available too, not just Eng/Span.

Does anyone know the website, please - it's driving me mad?

I do not know of a site like that. Was it recently? .... If so check your history on your browser.

@Sancho: I think I found something similar a long time ago, but it seems to have disappeared.

The next best thing is to use this site to hear translated text spoken (but you have to provide the translated text). If you can't create your own translation, you can use the site Lar69 provided to help you find suitable text elsewhere on the web. You can also cast fate to the wind and use a lowsy machine translation.

In the site I linked to, you type in text (200-character maximum, in English or one of several other languages in the drop-down menu) and choose whether you want to hear the text spoken by a male or female voice (using the voice drop-down menu). Then press the PLAY button. I like Maria the best (for Spanish text).
For giggles, you can select a slower speed before pressing PLAY.

How can I search a list of web-sites I've visited recently? The search history of Bing, Yahoo and Google don't show it?

Web sites that you visit are kept in Internet Explorer's history (if you've so designated). It is also kept in other web browsers, if you've set them to keep track of web pages you visit. Search results are also saved in your history (at least they are stored in IE, if done from Yahoo).

¡Ya lo he encontrado!

¡Aquí está! -

Pero he equivocado, no traduce - sole pronuncia las letras que has apuntado, pero es muy interesante.

Yeah! I like it. (The other site I gave the link for is similar, but not as good.)
