Introduction

in tts •  8 months ago

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

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 :-)

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.

Can you send me a Voice link for my posts?

thanks for your support with my knee fund.

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.

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?

·
·

any updates?

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.

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

·

Stoped

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!!!

Amazing work...

@tts Please consider my posts for conversion, esp. sci-fi microfiction: https://steemit.com/writing/@ade-greenwise/writing-the-interface-arrives . Keep up the great service:)

I love this. I saw you translated someone's post to speech about Christ as Cryptocurrency

Sir Please Can You Teach Me How we make And Post In Steemit I Am Waiting

Wow I think this is interesting. Haha. Not sure if this affects copyright or not?

Is there anyway I could get this as a regular basis and have some 'creative control'?
the story you did for me had a male protagonist...you used a female voice.

·

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

This is fantastic, you just put the audio tool on my other page @aflfantasy and it works a treat :)

Is there a way to use this feature everytime?

·

You are invited to visit my articles. :-)

@bifilarcoil

Great initiative. Can't wait till it's fully developed.

Is it possible you could respin mine, and edit the
comment. It was a WIP, and it's finally perfected!

Your welcome to @ireneblessing your services are great

Nice service.

Great!
I follow you!

This is a great idea. You are welcome to freely read my posts if you wish. Some of them aren't as good as others but I've gotten a curie twice this past month. You could do well to offer a paid service. I love the audio player. I wish there was a way to use the audio player for my other audio to embed. Most of the time we have to hotlink to audio :(

Good luck with your project.

the good writing.
best regard. follow back me. thanks

I really enjoyed listening to my post! Thank you! UPvoted and followed with pleasure! 😉 🐴 🍍

STOP! I do not like that you have taken my work and published it as an audio version without having license to do so! This is copyright infringement!

·

Done

I like the idea, of text to voice, i am following you presently, and i will be needing you to convert my poems to audio hopefuly when my poem account is activated next week(want to create a new account for my poems and motivational stories). Thanks for the nice concept looking ahead to working with you.

How to include an icon and audio of one of our given posts?

Awesome content with nice photography. Thanks for upvoting with comment me. Go ahead......

Wow, how do we make your services accessible for blind people???

@tts, how can I benefit from this service?

not bad idea

Just discovered this. Nice service you're offering others.

A busy life often means that people do not have time to do all the reading

I find it too slow, please speed it up or link to reader that allow speed change.

·

Yeah, being able to change parameters would be cool. Possibly having a steemit associated site like d.tube? Not sure how that works exactly though.

Hi I like your audio file, could you read my English posts?

Great idea! I hope that the voice quality also gets better with time.

Great idea! I can listen while I still work.

Is this still athing on steem or has it evolved into something else? If it has, please send me the link.

Hello, It would be nice if you will turn my post into speech. Thank you in advance!

Hi @tts
This is an interesting service. It is particularly interesting from the standpoint of people with a visual impairment. You might consider automating a post which contains a link to the article as well as the audio recording and having that posted on your site. Perhaps the content could be put onto dtube?
Another thought is that on steemhost.com we could work on having a visually impaired enabled page that could display not only a link to the article but also a second link to open the audio. In Canada we have an organization called the CNIB and I am sure that there will be others in other countries that might be convinced to participate in this. These organizations might be interested in providing their members a steem-based blogging system.

Is there any way i can tag you and make you do one for my posts. i find it hilarious.

Feel free to convert whatever you wish. I am visually impared, and having spoken audio is great. Trying ot read things on a screen the size of a tiny photo is tough. More of us could use this :)

Absolutely love this! i was thinking of suggestion something very similar on utopian.io
if you need more upvotes you should share this bot on utopian, I'm sure you'll get a lot of appreciation and support! So how exactly do i use the bot on my post?

You don't have no respect for creators, STOP SPAMING!!!!

I really appreciate seeing you pop up here and there. Fantastic service!

Hi @tts, very interesting concept. Please convert our article , hope the spanish speaker is coming soon! @layra

That’s an excellent idea for some of the longer blogs to hear the audio.

I have a great deal of respect for people who deal with handicaps and believe it is essential that they have resources available to allow them to use computers, etc. However, you do not have the right to make other people's copyrighted information available as an audio download without their explicit permission. There is a big difference between using a tool or software that reads to you and having a third party provide downloadable audio content to anyone who wants it. You don't update your audio files when people edit their posts, do you? We have a right to edit for 7 days. We didn't give you permission to EARN MONEY on our content.
