Speakwire allows you to listen to an RSS feed from the selection on offer or type in the URL of your favourite feed.
Their website notes that the feed URL must end in .rss or .xml…damn mine ends in /feed…doesn’t work for Feedburner feeds either.
…an earlier blog post referred to audio feeds (4th paragraph).
From their website:
“Autocasting” is an automated form of podcasting that allows bloggers and blog readers to generate audio versions of text blogs from RSS feeds. Autocasting software uses XML parsers, TTS (text-to-speech) engines, and audio conversion utilities to convert text blogs into audio files that can be placed on a blog for download, synchronized to a portable audio device, or played on a desktop computer…”
…more on their help page.
As I understand you can select several of their suggested feeds and collect these in a box…if you click “Remember my feeds” your favourite feeds will always be in this box waiting to be listened.
If it does work for your blog, I wonder if their could be a way to put an audio version feed of your blog as a link on your blog sidebar…this way people could read or listen to your feed.
…or even a link on your blog that goes to Speakwire to listen to your blog.
They do say, “…you can then make a blogcast and link back to our site to let others hear it”.
…early days yet!
Is this someone Bloglines could partner with…so you have a choice to read your feeds or listen to your feeds in your favourite RSS reader…listening to feeds on your mobile phone RSS reader makes sense.
