    I am testing a feature from Talkr that automatically converts blog posts to machine generated audio. Look for the “Listen” link at the bottom of each post on this blog.

    Does this qualify as a podcast? I’m sure there are many podcast purists that would say no. It should be a real person reading the post for that, which is what I’d like to change this over to. For now, I’ll see if there’s any feedback on the automatic audio.

    As feedback to Talkr, it would be nice if there were different voice options you could pick. I can do that with my virtual fax/message service from j2. They should also drop the Flickr naming ripoff and add an “e”.
