Audio!

by Skald

I found a very cool web service called Talkr

Talker automatically converts all of your blog posts to audio.... and will add an audiolink at the bottom of all written posts. Very very cool!

Especially for the teaching blog. I now have a way of providing students, simultaneously, with reading and listening material. And I don't have to do any extra work. As my students are "English as a Foreign Language" learners, this is a very useful and supercool service.

Those of you wanting a lazy way to enter the world of podcasting... check out Talkr.

If you'd like a taste of what it does, see the teaching blog at:

Hi!


My name is Dave and I am the Director of Network Development for Talkr. I see that you are considering using Talkr.com as a tool for teaching some English as a Second Language classes. I think that is a really cool idea and am very curious as to how you like the service so far.

Have you pulled any feeds yet or set it up for your site? What do you think of the audio quality?

Please drop me a line anytime you like and I would love to hear some feedback on the service.
Regards,
