Three authors on text to speech technology
Interesting article by Cory Doctorow about the new Kindle’s text-to-speech feature from the perspective of a successful author (who also distributes all of his works as Creative Commons licensed text and encourages readers to convert to additional formats).
It’s interesting when there’s a disconnect between a representative body and the people they’re representing. Different agendas I guess.
EDITED TO ADD:
See for yourself – Wil has blogged an mp3 comparison of him reading a story compared to a text to speech reading.
