Vocalyze will now provide audio versions of The Good Men Project articles.
On any given weekday, our time becomes ultra-precious. From our waking moments, we are torn between that extra 30 minutes of snooze-time or the fulfillment of a proper morning routine—one where we can enjoy a few last moments with our loved ones and digest our daily news along with our breakfasts.
A new company aims to maximize our morning time, our commute time, and our general crammed-with-work time. “Instead of being tied to reading on a screen, Vocalyze will stream audio of your favorite news stories, tweets, or other text in a streamlined, customizable app, like a personal news radio station. The ultimate goal is to ‘Help people make better use of their time,'” says Frank Qiu, Vocalyze Media CEO.
The Good Men Project has partnered with Vocalyze and now provides its articles as Vocalyzed audio feed, meaning Good Men stories are fully available through the service. Throughout the site, look for the Vocalize link to “Listen to your favorite articles.”
“This partnership will make it easier for our readers to access our articles wherever and whenever they want—whether on the computer screen or listening,” said Lisa Hickey, CEO of The Good Men Project. “Vocalyze makes it simple to hear our stories during your daily commute or workout or while you are multitasking at your computer.”
Vocalyze is helpful for any reader who has a hard time reading text on a screen, especially those with visual impairments or a condition such as dyslexia. But with more and more people reading on smaller and smaller screens, listening to the web seems pretty appealing to us.
