Drew B's take on tech PR

This is going to be huge if people like me, who 'waste' 3hrs a day in the car, embrace Talkr. If I use it then I could do something far more productive - and listen to 3hrs woth of text. Wonder if you can stick emails or background reading on Talkr? Then I could do prep for meetings whilst driving home and on the way back in the next day?

The only problem is this won't be an interactive blogging experience. No comments, trackbacks, saving, sending, etc etc. I'd like to know how that might work.

Nevon

It could be huge, Drew, I agree. The one thing I think is key to it is the voice speaking. If you're going to listen to a blog, the voice has to be easy on the ear, not the proverbial computer voice.

From what I've heard so far with Talkr, they're doing a good job in that area.

Ted Demopoulos

I'm surprised at the speech quality - it's far better than I imagined, and I've implemented talkr functionality on my blog.

Mr Talkr, Chris Brooks, tells me he was strongly influenced by what used to be a long commute to work everyday.

Robin Capper

Wow, the quality is surprising. I've added Talkr to both my blogs and will see how it goes. Thanks for the tip!
