Vocalfruits launches RSS to Voice

Vocalfruits is a new service from xFruits that converts any RSS feed into a mp3/podcast. So instead of reading blogs posts you can be easily listening to them. You need to go through the somewhat convoluted signup process before you can actually listen to anything for the first time. Still it’s worth the effort. You need to basically give the URL of the feed for which you want to hear the voice/podcast and than Vocalfruits loads up the blog corresponding to feed and sticks and voice player next to each blog post. After that all you need to do hit the play button and Voicefruits instantly starts converting text to speech. For most part the service works perfectly, but messes up on the nouns, which obviously the automated system cannot get right.

Vocalfruits is making available and an ad hoc script to get this functionality on blogs. Will dig into that more later.
