Listen to the Posts
In the interests of accessibility, we have added the option to have your PC read out the site’s blog posts. This fantastic service is provided by Odiogo, and automatically creates an mp3 file using a computer generated voice. You can simply click on the Listen Now button on any post to hear the audio version. You can also subscribe to the audio feed and send the mp3 files to iTunes, or your mp3 player if you prefer.
Clearly speech synthesis has come a long way since I used to mess around with it on my ZX Spectrum 25 years ago.
As the audio is based on the site’s RSS Feed, it is not possible to offer this facility for any section other than the blog, but I hope you will agree that this is a useful addition to the site.
