Thanks to an article over at AllBusiness.com, I’ve discovered a podcast tool that will convert your blog into a podcast. It’s called Odiogo and all you have to do is sign up with your blog URL and it converts what you’ve written into a computerized speech mp3 file. I was intrigued even though I don’t normally have a lot of faith in the text to speech technologies out there. My experience has shown that the computer generating of certain terminology and other idiosyncrasies of the English language. But since it’s free to try out, I figured I’d give it a test drive. You’ll see the “Subscribe to My Podcast” button in the links on the right. Feel free to leave comments and let me know what you think.
**Update** I’ve already noticed a glitch. Even though I adjusted my RSS feed settings from summary to full text the way Odiogo instructed, I didn’t do it until after I received their e-mail and my blog had already been ‘read’. So all of my current posts are just snippets instead of the entire post. Hopefully when the service updates content it will correct this issue.
