How to Consume More Articles (Without Reading Them)

A friend who knows well how much content I consume sent me a great tip the other day. If you’re sick of actually reading all those articles you find throughout the day (or that other people send you), just forward the articles to your free account on Sound Gecko. It’ll turn those written words into an audiofile (read in a not entirely fluid male voice).

So cool. And no, I’ve never seen another app like it.

Now I’m just waiting to be able to change the guy’s voice to a British accent, like on the GPS.

If you’re not certain on when you’d find the time to listen to such audiofiles, check out my post, When I Find Time to Listen to Audiobooks. Same logic applies.

The first three articles I listened to on Sound Gecko?

Have you tried Sound Gecko? Will you now?

  1. I would like to try that! I email myself all day long at work with articles and things to look up later. But sometimes, when I get home, I don’t read them. I don’t read them at all. I ignore my Gmail and don’t even notice all those emails to myself. Sound Gecko could be the solution for me to stop ignoring myself :).
