Transforming text into a natural sounding podcast with Amazon Polly
Earlier this week one of our partners, WP Engine, released a plugin that leverages Amazon Polly to transform written content into lifelike speech, directly from WordPress. Being dedicated to helping our clients deliver great digital content experiences, we were eager to help pilot this integration with WP Engine by finding a launch partner. Collaborating with POLITICO in Europe, we transformed their daily political newsletters – Brussels Playbook and London Playbook – into engaging podcasts.
Here’s what POLITICO had to say about their new integration, in WP Engine’s press release:
“Our readers are digesting news and stories through their mobile and voice-driven devices more and more,” said Johannes Boege, Chief Product Officer at POLITICO in Europe. “This is a great opportunity for us along with our agency 10up to test the distribution of our content with voice technology. We are excited to use Amazon Polly to reach more people in new ways.”
If you want to check out the podcast, you can subscribe to the Brussels Playbook and London Playbook. If you’re a content creator interested in integrating forward-looking technologies like Amazon Polly, get in touch.
