Hi MonsterBuzz,

I’ve been using Odiogo on my blog for over 6 months and I’ve received lots of positive feedback. Sometimes people would prefer listening to an article rather than reading it. I think it’s a great feature to have on any blog or web site.

Long post but lack of content may be boring to read. But if the post have a lot of content, it could be enjoyable.

This is an interesting service, MonsterBuzz. I however think that this means if a blogger decide to install this, he/she should keep an eye on “spelling mistakes” and “gramatical errors” or else the post will be very funny.

Reading is not like hearing, though πŸ˜€

Text to speech software hasn’t yet been mastered by a particular company. Still it’s pretty nice to have software like Odiogo to articulate text is a form in which a blind person can here. For regular readers though, I don’t think they’d particularity accept a computer voice as a means of getting their content.

With that said, at the rate that technology is being developed now days you’d expect to see computer programed voices to be much more advanced within the near future. Once we can here some “feeling” out of a computer operated voice than things can only improve from there.

This is making work pretty easy and simple. Rather than reading the posts or articles, listening to them can be time consuming and helpful as we can do some other work while listening. Thanks for the Share.

I have used them before and I liked the fact that users could listen to the post being read if they were tired and all. My only concern was the type of voice being used. I think I would of stayed with it if you could change the voices or make it similar to yours, that would be great.

Employee Engagement is my interest. So I’m impressed with this software that enables text to be translated to voice.
