If you’re like me and you prefer listening rather than reading, then a new API from Ericson might be just up your street!

Their new text to speech API lets developers quickly and easily convert strings of text into audio files. It’s then just a small step to creating a system which automatically records audio versions of all the CMS powered pages on your website; for example your latest news headlines. Pretty cool stuff!

If you’d like help getting audio clip generation setup on your website, then give us a shout and we’ll work out how we can ‘mash it up’ for you.

All I have to do now is work out how to stop it speaking in such an annoying American computer accent!
