Free Online text to speech (TTS) converter SpokenText -- I just found a free online tool that converts your text into an mp3.
- Copy and paste your page content into Spoken Text (personally, I like John's voice).
- Download the mp3.
- Using a program like Camtasia, remove the Spoken Text advertising.
- Save the file as an mp3.
- Upload the mp3 to a directory on the same server as your Web site.
- Create a new file with a ".m3u" extension.
- Copy/paste the direct URL of the mp3 into the .m3u.
- Insert this code onto your Web site (placed appropriately).Code:<p><embed type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" src="http://www.iknewit.org/index.m3u" name="MediaPlayer1" width=549 height=46 autostart=0 showcontrols=1 volume=-300></p>
- Change the src to the direct URL of your .m3u.
- Alter the width and height dimensions. Enjoy.
- Create an <h2>, and place your keyword in it. Example of finished product: How to Carve a Wooden Pipe
- Place a fullstop after each heading, to make sure that Spoken Text does not think it needs to roll-on to the next set of words immediately, thinking that it is the same sentence. Remove periods after numbering (i.e. s/1./1/), and place them at the end of the list item.
I only just thought of the idea, and am now going to do this for every other page on I Knew It!
