I love this. I can create a Medium Podcast of my favorite articles. Now If I can just increase the speed... Then it should be nominated for the Golden Kitty Award

@dredurr yes speed and accents is something we thought about too! We shall definitely add them! Thanks for the feedback!

@dredurr honestly I can't believe this doesn't exist already, I was brainstorming on this about 2 weeks ago. @ma7moudfelfel .... random idea: is it possible to have it shown on the main screen (homepage) with Play Next option?

@charlesmudy Even us didn't believe that no one has made it before :) And regarding your homepage idea, yes it is possible, we've been thinking of a feature like this actually, that will turn your homepage into a playlist.

@ma7moudfelfel @charlesmudy well, to be fair, there are already some "read it aloud" extensions in the Chrome Extensions store, but they're all terrible, esp. in comparison to this. :)

@dredurr This exists already (exactly!) in @NarroApp https://narro.co

@charlesmudy @dredurr @ma7moudfelfel the closest thing is SpeakIt! and before it was shut down evernote had a similar feature to read simplified articles. Click, hold shift, click, right click, SpeakIt! not that user friendly :|

@andrewwarner Yup, we are working on it! Listening to articles on the go and creating your own playlists is something we really want!

@andrewwarner There is already a mobile app for iOS for turning news sites (including Medium) into podcasts. It's called NewsBot. http://newsbot.mobi/ https://www.producthunt.com/tech... Disclaimer: I am the author of this app.

@andrewwarner Came here to say this. The use case for desktop listening is pretty thin compared to mobile.

@hammadh4 @andrewwarner Any update on a mobile version?

This is great! Now I can listen to more than NPR while I work :) Medium is full of rich content and advice. Now for a Morgan Freeman voice. @ma7moudfeifei @amckinnis
