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.

Firefox Advance

Experimental recommendation engine built into Firefox

Firefox is launching a new experimental browser extension called Advance, which recommends new websites and articles based on what you’re currently reading and your recent browsing history.

Engadget
You can flag and block articles you don't want, so you'll ideally refine your results over time to get only the content you'd actually care to see. And Mozilla, the privacy advocate that it is, knows that the recommendation system may make some people uncomfortable.

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).

ReadIT 🔥

Never forget to read a link again

Pocket, Feedly, Twitter Bookmarks. These are some of the places where the links you wanted to "save for later" go to die.

ReadIT 🔥 puts a stop to this broken behavioural pattern by putting an ⏳expiration date on your links. This way, if you really care about reading something you'll make sure to find the time for it, or else it will 💨 disappear.
