Hey hunters, Excited to share with you the Alexa Article Reader skill. I built this because, I like reading Medium, Techcrunch, Indiehackers and many other online publishing platforms. But I often find myself with a lot of bookmarked articles in my Pocket app. Given that I also like listening to audio books while doing some work, I started trying many different text to speech solutions that I ended up not really liking as the voice were sometimes too robotic. Since I got my Alexa device, I noticed how human like Alexa's voice was. So I figured It would be more enjoyable to listen to Alexa read my Pocket articles. So I built the Article Reader skill for Alexa. Please feel free to try it out, and give me your feedbacks.
