👋 Hey Product Hunt! I'm Miguel Piedrafita, a 17-year-old maker. 🗓After resting on the holidays, I decided I wanted to build something. And, to make everything more interesting, I decided I wanted to finish it in a week. 💡The idea came from realizing I don't have enough time to read all the awesome content out there. Reading requires your complete attention during the length of the article. But audio doesn't! So I decided to build something that turned existing articles into audio, in hopes of increasing both my audience and the amount of content I consume. 🚧I worked consistently on Blogcast during the whole week, logging my progress on Makerlog, Twitter and 200 Words a Day. I also wrote a big article detailing all the process on my blog. 🚀Super excited to launch this! Let me know if you have any questions :)
@m1guelpf Congrats on the launch Miguel 🥳🎉 Never stop shipping 🚀
@m1guelpf congratulations on the launch
@m1guelpf now I want to have a more active blog only to test blogcast on it! Nice work Miguel, and it's even better considering the one-week ship, keep working hard and shipping like there is no tomorrow 😉
@m1guelpf Congrats for launching! 😍🔥

I implemented blogcadt across my blog to make it easier for people to consume our content, this is especially helpful as it’s a fitness based company so people can listen to our articles while working out! The experience has been excellent so far, and any issues I did encounter were very quickly resolved. I couldn’t recommend blogcast enough, I can’t wait to see where this product goes!

Pros:

Super simple to use, high quality audio, great price.

Cons:

It would be great to have some analytics down the line, but this isn’t vital, and hasn’t impacted the product in any way for me.

From sign-up to downloading the first article audio it took me less than five minutes. The processing of the audio took me less than 20 seconds for a article with 1125 words (6858 characters without spaces) to be generated. Will use again.

Pros:

- blazing fast - awesome price policy - good quality - almost flawless gramatical pronounciation

Cons:

- problems with enumerations

@m1guelpf has been working hard on this app. Super inspiring to see a 17-y-o maker make and market his own product as well as he does :) Keep it up! Amazing job right there ☝️
@bsamel Thank you Basile!

Overall, a great product

Pros:

The voices are very real, its fast and works well.

Cons:

Yet to fine one.
