BuzzVoice User Chris Weber: Programmer

“It’s a great app for the car. I use BuzzVoice nearly every day. I load up new stories in the garage, hit the play button, then start my commute.

Before BuzzVoice, I probably wasted about 15 minutes at the start,  and the end of my work day, tuning into the news and catching up with things.

Now, I utilize the time I’m already wasting during my commute to do that.”

How are you using BuzzVoice in the wild?

BuzzVoice Announces Real-Time Audio Platform For Publishers [Private Beta Launch]

Email Publishers@BuzzVoice.comNew Service Lets Bloggers and News Sites Offer Streaming Audio of Their Text Content To Engage Multitaskers On Their Sites & On The Social Web

Austin, TX,  March 15, 2010 – BuzzVoice today announced that it has entered private beta with bloggers and news sites for its new “Real-time Radio” service. By installing a simple widget on their sites, publishers can leverage the BuzzVoice platform to instantly offer a streaming audio channel of breaking text stories to their audiences.

[Mashable - Spoken by BuzzVoice]

[Above: Mashable in the new widget. See other styles in our sidebar at right]

Through the voice-powered widget, visitors can listen to continuous stories while multitasking on the publisher’s site, post the widget to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and other social sites, or listen on the go on iPhones, iPods, iPads, MP3 players and other mobile devices.

A team of social media and news industry advisors including Chris Brogan, Jason Falls, James Jackson of Enquirer Media/Gannett and others helped shape the new service, which helps publishers increase engagement while promoting their content on the social web.

According to Falls, the new service “allows your blog or news site to become a streaming radio station, of sorts. My community can now stream my content live, subscribe to it in iTunes, access it via the BuzzVoice iPhone app and even grab my widget to share on other sites.”

BuzzVoice CEO John Atkinson states, “We’re excited to give bloggers and publishers a new way to distribute their content and expand their presence on the social web. In addition to reaching busy consumers, our Real-time Radio service also allows publishers to make their content accessible to the visually impaired and people with dyslexia and other learning difficulties.”

*To request a private beta invitation and enter to win a free iPad, email your site’s URL to: Publishers@BuzzVoice.com

*See It Live: BuzzVoice will be demonstrating the new service at the South by Southwest Conference in Austin this week. To schedule a demo, email Press@BuzzVoice.com
