I’m enjoying curio.io at the moment after spotting it on a few articles here and there. Proud too that it’s a UK start up. Well done guys.
I’ve long wanted something like this, and have used automated speech technologies to a lesser rate of success (saying that, I wonder how long until automated is as good as human read?). Would be good if Curio add functionality to allow upping the speed a bit, as per Audible and Podcast apps. Read so nicely like they are, it pushes the time investment up a little to far for some articles. 10 min to read in your head or 30+ listening to the voice artist at conversational speed.
Still, another good cooking and washing up listening source.
