Thanks for sharing this...I love this feature. I just tweeted at you on how much I like it. The voice is great and not at all like the text-to-speech I am used to listening to. I am a podcaster and I think this will help a lot of people multitask a bit, especially if they are interrupted with incoming emails or whatever. You can read-along but continue reading if your eyes need to go elsewhere. Hope you keep this. So I think it could become a standard that readers expect when they read online. Can I vote twice?
I just started using Medium more and I absolutely love this feature. I’ve listened to my own stories and the AI does the inflections just as I would. Many complain that they can’t read their own stories, but let’s be honest. How many stories would go without an audio version if you had to do all of them yourself? I certainly appreciate it. Thanks for this!!
Oh! How cool - I love it :) The voice is surprisingly natural sounding! My eyes took a much appreciated rest for a bit.
I’ve been a long time subscriber to Audible on Amazon I think this is Great :D Thank you!
Super excited about this! We are all spending too much time starting at our screens. Using another sense to take in the great content at Medium is awesome.
Love this feature Warren. I use it when I’m reading, helps me churn through reading and also stay focused on the article (at a good speed) when my willpower is low! Keeping me more engaged...
Hi Warren, I am one of those small, randomly selected people, and I ABSOLUTELY love this feature. I have consumed more ideas than I ever have on Medium. And also as a non-native English speaker, this is really helping me to improve my pronunciation. Keep this forevermore!
This is the single most important feature you can role out for me. I simply don’t have the time to read all the articles I would like to on Medium. If I could listen to the articles I could consume at least 3X the amount of Medium content I do now.
I absolutely LOVE this new feature as a busy parent too it saves me so much time.
I was THRILLED the other day when I saw the audio option. I didn’t know how it got there, but I pressed play, and then I was blown away hearing the words that I wrote being narrated.
