Podcasting without really trying


A website is offering to automatically create podcasts from text-only blogs for free. Talkr has long been offering this service but previously limited it to well-known bloggers.

While many companies have been releasing podcasting tools in the past months, Talkr is different, says its chief executive officer Chris Brooks in a press statement.

Those other tools are great if you have the time and patience to install a new application and then record, host and distribute a podcast. However, many people don’t have the time. If you already write a blog, Talkr will give you a podcast with little effort and zero cost.

Talkr says setting up a service takes less than 10 minutes.

I tried it several minutes ago and found that signing up did take less than 10 minutes. In a short while, my sites posts were already converted to MP3 files with the words read by a female voice that sounded robotic. Some of words like Cybercafe were mispronounced.
