BlogBard: Convert Blog Text into Speech and Listen

BlogBard: Convert Blog Text into Speech and Listen

blogbard-1 Reading blogs is common these days. However, with the app which we’re discussing right now, you can literally listen to  blogs instead of reading.

BlogBard is a free service which allows users to get the blogs which they love read back to them. BlogBard converts the text blog into speech which can then be listened on any device e.g. PC, smartphone or tablet. BlogBard, however, requires a web connection to provide this service.

BlogBard allows two ways of adding the blogs which you want to listen. Firstly, you can manually type the URL links of the blogs which you want to listen. Secondly you can log in to your Google Reader subscription and BlogBard will automatically pick up your blog subscriptions and convert them to speech and enable listening to them.

BlogBard can convert any RSS enabled blog to speech. Mobile users with iPhone can access and listen to their feeds via their iPhones. Feeds can also be downloaded via iTunes store. If you’re a blogger yourself and want to give your readers this service that they can listen to your blogs, you can embed the BlogBard player in your blog’s website and your readers can listen to your blog as well.

BlogBard is a useful utility for anyone who relates himself to reading blogs on the web. Visit BlogBard.
