The Wikipedia experience is a very easy one. Upon loading a Wikipedia page, all one has to do is read the text. Things may be getting even easier in the coming years thanks to an intriguing crowdsourced project. The KTH Royal Institute of Technology University in Stockholm, Sweden is hoping to raise funds to develop a perfect text-to-speech program capable of making it very easy for people to “read” Wikipedia pages. Of course, with text-to-speech programs, the text would be listened to. The program would read the text aloud for those who would prefer an audiobook version of the site. TechCrunch is reporting on the program. Hopefully, positive updates will eventually appear.
One colossal benefit to text-to-speech programs is they can expand audiences. A person who suffers from visual impairments might not otherwise be able to learn what is on a page without the special program’s help. For a business, the ability to reach the widest possible audience is critical when engaging in any type of promotional campaign. Persons trying to control the positive nature of their reputation also should seek to reach the widest possible audience. Wikipedia is a great venue for disseminating information. Text-to-speech programs further help the cause.
A very critical point has to be mentioned to those with serious plans and intentions to create, update or edit a Wikipedia page. While text-to-speech does help increase a Wikipedia entry’s audience, the program only reads what is presented on the page. The program will read poor quality writing, if that is what the program was given. Ironically, the extreme clarity of an excellent text-to-speech program is only going to highlight the problems inherent with weak Wikipedia business page creation.
To ensure the best possible work is performed, consider it a wise approach to hire Wikipedia writers and editors to make a Wiki page. The right tone, phrasing, and marketing psychology will all be infused into the material. Get Your Wiki is one of the best Wiki editing services available to help generate such content. The Wiki editors for hire at Get Your Wiki would even be able to mold the text to fit certain requirements. For example, the client could mention he or she wants the text to be appropriate to be read out loud. This way, the wording ends up effectively fitting in with a text-to-speech program.
