Podcasting – well sort of

phone12.jpgI came across a website called Talkr that claims to let you listen to text-only blogs on your iPod and other mp3 players. The idea looks great for someone like me who wants to have a podcast but hasn’t got time to record one. All you do is add your blog’s RSS feed to their site, and a permanent link to your blog post, and Talkr will create an MP3 of what you wrote in your post. I tried it on my last post here, and although I was disappointed by the automated female voice, it’s really quite good. I can see it being quite useful for people who want to listen to what I’ve got to say another time, rather than read it in one go. Also, visually-impaired visitors may like it. More features will be available soon!

Find out more at Talkr.com or visit the Talkr blog.

Try it for yourself and….
