Spokata Launches First Text to Speech Mobile Audio Platform for Real-Time News

Post by vikas » Fri Dec 08, 2017 12:33 pm

New App Provides Fact-Based Summaries of Online Articles from Verified Global Digital News Sources

New York, NY - Spokata, a mobile audio platform for real-time news, today announced the launch of its website and iOS app. Spokata streams real-time audio content from over 100 verified digital news sources, using a combination of its proprietary algorithms and Polly, an Amazon AI text-to-speech service.

The real-time nature of the platform makes Spokata’s news the freshest content among audio news products. Within seconds of articles posting online, the app generates audio summaries, providing users with short, fact-based streams. Spokata’s intuitive interface allows users to easily create personalized news playlists or browse a wide range of channels. While listening, users can get more depth by tapping Spokata’s links for instant access to the original article associated with the stream. Plus, whenever users return, they will always find the latest news at the top of their channels.

“Podcasting and music streaming are surging because on-demand audio delivers content within the context of mobility,” said Zack Sherman, CEO and founder of Spokata. “Video and text require your undivided attention. Spokata’s short format is explicitly designed for people on the go. Our target audience is typically doing something else while listening -- driving, working out, or in line at the grocery store.”

Key features of the Spokata iOS app and website include:

· Dynamic content network - The network transforms breaking news from over 100 verified digital news sources

· Daily Briefing - The top stories from around the world are automatically compiled into a short briefing delivered every morning

· Custom playlists - About to hit the gym or head to work? Cue up stories from across Spokata’s channels to create your own personal radio station

· Social media friendly - Spokata makes audio more shareable than ever. Users can make sure their friends are on top of the news, and know what they care about, by sharing audio through integrations with Facebook and Twitter.

According to a recent report from Activate, more than 67 million people in the U.S. listen to podcasts each month. When asked to name all the locations where they listen to podcasts, the most popular places are the car, bedroom, living room, gym, and while at work. Additionally, two-thirds of podcast listeners engage in purchase-related behaviors after hearing podcast ads.

Spokata is available for free on all iOS devices, desktop and the mobile web. To experience Spokata visit www.spokata.com.
