IHT.com is First English Language Web Site to Allow Users to Create Their Own Podcasts for Free

Paris-Based International Daily Launches New Audio News Service Online.

IHT International Herald Tribune

Visitors to IHT.com can now go to audionews.iht.com and select stories they would like to hear on the spot, or download articles to create a personalized audio feed that can be easily imported into iTunes or other podcasting software.

IHT.com is the first English language Web site to launch a service of this kind -- audio for the articles are dynamically generated using voices from professional readers.

This service is launched in conjunction with the Swedish company ReadSpeaker, the European leader in speech enabling the Web. ReadSpeaker has recently been named as a "global innovator" by Guideware Group, a technology research firm, and was selected among the most innovative European companies at Innovate!Europe 2006.

IHT readers can access this new section directly at audionews.iht.com. The service is launched in beta version, meaning that changes and improvements will continue.
