The other day I mentioned Speakwire (converts your blog to audio and reads it to you)…by the way, somewhere down the bottom of the sidebar I have a button to listen to this blog via Speakwire.
From their website:
“Talkr provides a service that allows you to listen to your favorite text-only news sources rather than read them. If you can point us to an RSS feed (a machine-readable version of your favorite blog or news source) we will convert that feed from text to speech.
Talkr can also provide you with a podcast of your favorite news sources.”
Seems like a similar service to Speakwire, with the added feature that it generates a podcast feed of your favourite blog so you can track updates in you RSS reader instead of going to Talkr.
It’s a podcast with a difference as you don’t record an audio of yourself, it’s a computer generated version of the text in your blog post (spoken by a robot!)
It also has more robust RSS reader features such as, show all posts, or keep (save a post).
I’ve added a Talkr podcast button to the subscription section in this blog…so now you can download the audio version of this blog via your podcast reader.
