Free Service To Listen To Wikipedia Articles Launched

26 December, 2007 by Peter Verhoeven

Pediaphon is a free service by Andreas Bischoff, which generates MP3 audio files from Wikipedia articles by speech synthesis. The service is operated at the University of Hagen, Germany. These files can be played immediately in the webbrowser or be downloaded for later use in a MP3-Player. A podcast will be generated for each inquiry.

The Pediaphon can be attained under the address The service was realized by use of FreeSpeech, MBROLA and the MP3-Encoder LAME. It is a contribution to the WikiProject Spoken Wikipedia.

At this moment English, French and German are supported. I find the quality of the audio files disappointed.
