Voicepods is a neat service that will create voice recordings based on the text that you write. Voicepods offers eight voices in which you can have your text read-aloud. The voice recording that is generated from your text can be listened to online and you can download it as an MP3 to use wherever MP3 playback is supported. Watch my video that is embedded below to learn how easy it is to make a voice recording on Voicepods.
Applications for Education
I often encouraged my students to read their papers aloud or have them read aloud by someone else to spot mistakes that they didn't catch when reading silently. Voicepods could be a great tool for students to use to hear their written words read aloud. All they would need to do is copy and paste the text of their papers into Voicepods to hear their work read aloud.
