A White Paper by Michael Fiore

Audio Webmail

Now all mail.com Beta users can opt to have emails read aloud in 11 languages using the Audio Webmail option. By integrating advanced speech synthesis technology directly within the webmail client, the contents of email messages are read aloud.

At the click of a button, users can generate ‘podmail’; that is converting an entire email message to an audio file for easy transferability to personal devices such as portable media players. mail.com is the first web-based email provider to offer such a service.

Apart from the current 11 languages, including UK and US English, German, Italian, French, Japanese, Spanish, Danish, Swedish, Portuguese, and Dutch, Audio Webmail would be adding additional languages in the future. This service works directly from the web browser without requiring any downloads or software installs, making it compatible with any computer.

The partnership between Outblaze, the global hosted email provider, and ReadSpeaker, the leader in speech-enabling the Web, resulted in the development of the Audio Webmail feature.

"Audio Webmail is appealing because it allows users to have email read to them while focusing on something else. Additionally, the convenient 'podmail' capability allows you to catch up on the day's emails while exercising, commuting, or doing any other activity that requires you to be away from your computer," says Jo-Anne Timothy, spokesperson for mail.com.
