Listen To The Blog

Technology changes so fast and so much. Today, I discovered a widget (called Odiogo, www.odiogo.com) that allows each of my blog posts to move from text to speech. Curious bod that I am, I tried it. Well, the automatic installation did not work. But, I was undeterred, and copied the code and inserted it myself. It works! From what I see you can choose to listen to each blog or select from a menu to listen to all blogs.

The voice is machine-made so do not mistake it for mine.

I would love to get feedback on this, especially from people who had not been able to get access to the blog due to having impaired vision.
