What do people think of Synth?
Synth is going to change the way teachers use audio to not only bring aspects of real-world communication to the classroom, but also will challenge students to listen to each other and interact with their academic subjects in an authentic way.
App gives you a possibility to perceive and convey information along with sense of author's presence. You can listen other's people thoughts and find something special to yourself, not only stories or discoveries but real life emotions that you can feel though the voice.
I’ll tell you about my specific use case: Humor. I’m not a comedian, but I play one in TV (kidding). More seriously... I pose this simple question: Right now, would you rather read a joke on Twitter or listen to an entire podcast of humor? Or, would you enjoy hearing a ‘byte-sized’ audio clip of the comedian using his/her natural voice to tell the joke? I pick the last one. I can think of no better format to tell my ’byte-sized‘ jokes (on the run) than with Synth. I get to use the power of voice to make the joke funny and I get voice interaction from the audience. There’s no real comparison.
