Have you ever just wanted to listen to Fat Pitch Financials? You can now, at least for the time being.
I ran across a unique service today called Odiogo that takes blog posts and creates audio podcasts out of them. The voice quality of the automated reader is very impressive. Give it a try by clicking on the “listen now” button at the top of this page or by going to Fat Pitch Financials Podcast page.
I’ve only found two issues so far with this automated podcasting service. I noticed that the reader states the stock tickers in parentheses in my articles. This can really break up the flow of sentences. I also noticed that Odiogo only maintains the audio files for the most recent posts. I probably could solve that problem by downloading the mp3 audio files and storing them on my server, but that’s an extra step that I’d rather not have to do.
I’m interested in getting your feedback on this technology. What do you think of the voice quality? Do you subscribe to podcasts? Would you like to have the current Fat Pitch Financials feed include the audio option along with post text in your feedreader? And finally, are you going to subscribe to the Fat Pitch Financials podcast?
