The internet may have its own podcast soon.
Yesterday, TAYL launched on Product Hunt to give content on the internet a voice. How TAYL works:
Step 1: Signup to create your own “podcast”
Step 2: When you find something interesting online, bookmark it on TAYL
Step 3: Later on, grab your AirPods and start listening to the internet (i.e. the sites bookmarked)
Some of TAYL's additional features:
It detects the language of text automatically 🔍
It uses A.I. to summarize long articles 🤓
It lets you select from over 50 voices in 17 languages 🌍
It sounds (almost) human 🎧
Some early reactions on Product Hunt:
“I’ve always wanted something like this. I listen to a lot of podcasts, never get the time to read though” - Keir
“Best voice imitation” - Anna
Audio technology like this could be a solution for people with vision or reading problems, and we're seeing others dip into the space.
