), the innovative mobile audio company, announced today MT-Podcast, which lets anyone produce podcasts without the need for voice recordings. MT-Podcast will be available in Q2 and will revolutionize podcasting through deleting the need to record people speaking.
Users - corporate, departmental, team or individual - need only write their script in a Word document, and let MT-Podcast be their podcast announcer. MT-Podcast translates script into a natural sounding male or female voice in MP3 format, which can be posted on the internet as a podcast, as well as played on any MP3 player (including iPod, PDAs, mobile phones/cellphones, and PCs).
MT-Podcast lets anyone produce professional-sounding podcast recordings, easily and at low cost.
To create a podcast, people currently must read a script into a microphone, and then convert the recording into an MP3. The UK's Stuff magazine - and many other magazines and newspapers - currently produce podcasts this way. MT-Podcast simplifies this process by automatically and accurately translating written Word documents to MP3 Podcasts without the need for recorded voice. MT-Podcast can also be used for training manuals and news services, and anywhere else where people have traditionally had to read and record written material.
