Play (for Medium)

Listen to Medium articles with a Chrome Extension

You can listen to many high quality articles from medium.
Kunal Bhatia- Co-founder & Design Lead @SlidesUp
I use Play.ht for providing audio for my Medium readers. They are robotic voices, but it gets the job done and it's very easy to get started. You can even embed the player inside your own articles.
Niv Dror- Words @ProductHunt & @AngelList
This seems like a very popular Chrome extension for listening to articles. Did well in the Product Hunt launch 😊

Amazon Polly for WordPress

Convert any text content on a WordPress site into audio 🎧

Amazon Polly is a service that turns text into lifelike speech. With dozens of voices across a variety of languages, you can select the ideal voice and build engaging speech-enabled applications that work in many different countries. This plugin shows how WordPress creators can easily add Text-to-Speech capabilities to written content.

Amazon Web Services
I first told you about in late 2016 in my post Amazon Polly - Text to Speech in 47 Voices and 24 Languages. After that launch, we added support for Korean, five new voices, and made Polly available in all Regions in the aws partition.

Tattle

Listen to your news stories, narrated by humans

Kate- Community @Tierion
Instead of reading the news, enjoy it being read to you! Plus, it's read to you in a friendly human voice (instead of a robot voice, because as much as I like Alexa and Siri, they don't have the same finesse).

Audilog

Turn any website of your choice into a podcast.

Problem: I got bored reading a lengthy article about Neuralink (https://waitbutwhy.com/2017/04/neuralink.html). So, I needed someone to read it for me.

How it works: Browse to the web page within the app, tap the Speaker icon.

Additional Features:

➡️ Create playlist of web pages
