We convert selected posts to speech and make the content available for more users.

A busy life often means that people do not have time to do all the reading they would like to do online. Having a chance to listen to the content instead of reading it allows them to do something else at the same time.
Sometime reading long post on a small screen is not always easy. It allows people to get the information they want without a great deal of scrolling and aggravation.
Some non native speaker may have difficulty reading in a second language. They may prefer hearing the post.

Please consider upvoting us. We need more bandwidth for posting and have ongoing expense to creating and hosting the speech files.

Post owner if you don’t want us to convert your posts to speech, please reply here with the text STOP


best regard. follow back me. thanks

A very good service. Feel free to turn my posts into speech!

Isn't this essentially spamming?

that's why steem has "mute" and "block" functions

How is this spam? It's a really cool service if you ask me; (which you didn't), I personally appreciate it on my posts for exactly the reasons stated above. Somebody might just scroll through one of my articles just to pop a vote and then go, then they see that and they might listen to it, thus widening my audience :-)

Anyway, opinions are like bum holes, we all have one! :-)


@cryptogee As I understood, @cryptonfused was talking about a comment by ajaa23, not post by tts :)

Oh yes! Of course, yes that is definitely spam :-)


Ah ha! Thank you for this useful info!

I tend to try not to use the flag feature except in the worst cases of spam but if you don't like something or feel like something is completely spam, such as the above comment adding nothing of value just flag it

follow back me. thanks

I see you are active in the field of charity.
and you often give 100% upvote to others.
if @skorek masters will not visit my block?
does @skorek's master not give you 100% of your suaplra to my post my self?
I will be very happy sir @skorek do it.
because it is very valuable to me.
thank you sir @skorek.
hopefully you are always healthy and get an easy sustenance.
so you can always help .. best regards from me.
thank you sir @skorek.

Stop. While I enjoyed this service in the beginning, I am tired of seeing this on every single one of my posts. Please Stop. Thanks.

You also provide an archive of posts as they were written within those first few minutes. I once had half of a post disappear a day after I posted it (site glitch?) and was able to use your recording to transcribe the part that has been lost. I've been upvoting your comments ever since.

Now that’s a cool feature I didn’t know existed.
Here I was going to wish this user Merry Christmas to cheer him up and instead I find something useful to cheer me up. Talk about instant good Karma...

Great innovation @tts. So, how do you select posts to convert to speech? If I want you to convert some or all my posts to speech, how can I make that happen?

We my add this feature in the future. Please follow our blog for updates.

It would be a great service outside Steemit as well. I for one create educational content and script everything filmed into text... this would be a great help to me. And if you designed a platform that did create these from video, it would be a great advantage to DTube over YouTube.

Please notify me if you get this aspect working!

esto funciona ya? o es para un futuro?

is that function already possible?

You should really edit your text to something more relevant than "Introduction"

You are totally right. If it wasn't because they out of nowhere popped in here telling me about this new feature, I would have never know about them. Even in this post there is only 1 tag...

Good for you for giving proper support to them. They clearly need a little bit of advises on how to get known in this platform, because what they are offering is quite cool actually.

As far as I know, the only promotion they are doing is leaving comments on people's posts announcing they converted it into an audio, and while this is ok, I think there are better ways for them to get noticed.

Really cool!

Very interesting service. As mentioned by some other suers, the speech can be faster, quite slow now. Also, how do you plan to make TTS available? I would think this shall be user controlled rather then you deciding what posts to convert and post the audio file as a comment. I may like to listen to posts when eg driving my car, and prefer to read the post when I'm at my desk.

Why dont you upvote posts? You just comment and ask for upvote and never upvote anyone?


I would be very interested in this feature. please keep us updated! Thank you.

are you open-source?
i would love to see how it works "under the hood" ^_^

Agreed! I'd love to see the code :-)

Me too!!!
