Weekend Word Wrap: text-to-speech

David K. Israel

I tend to be behind when it comes to technology. For this, I blame my parents, who, in 1985, were the absolute last ones in the neighborhood to get cable (anyone remember Prism?). Which is to say that my grandparent's dog was watching HBO before I was.

Disclaimer on the table, I hope I'm ahead of the curve here by introducing you to OdioGo, the company pushing the technology that converts typed words on the Web to audio, either streaming through a flash-based plugin, or directly to you iPod/mp3 player.
