Too Long; Didn't Read

Since late 2021, HackerNoon has been working to add audio versions of each article published on our platform. To reduce audio generation time, we built a tool to auto-generate synthetic audio as soon as articles are published. This tool is powered by AI, allowing transcripts of an article to be processed almost instantaneously.  Readers can choose from four different voices to listen to; currently, every article is presented by english-speaking synthetic voices. It’s also possible to change the speed of each audio track, allowing users to choose their own pace. This Synthetic Audio was developed by Marcos Fabian, a developer at HackerNoon. He developed the audio to allow active listeners a chance at enjoying articles at the same pace as active readers. It’s thanks to his efforts that Synthetic Audio is now available for so many stories on HackerNoon!
