After talking to @Documentally, and seeing the subtitling talk at Shift Happens (more on that in the next post), I have been thinking about doing some podcasts of my writing. As well as making it more accessible to visually impaired people, and a lot easier for people who are dyslexic (or just plain like people reading to them) it will give a window, hopefully, into how my writing sounds in my head. I think it’s always interesting to hear the author read their own work, and it helps inform future reading too. It would be lovely to hear what you think about them, and if you think it’s a nice/useful idea or not. I don’t think I’ll record all of my posts, but probably the creative pieces, and maybe the odd editorial style piece. Comment and let me know what you think would be useful!




That Place

And finally, if you want to see these pieces in good old black and white, see this post.

Thanks for reading/listening.

    This is a great idea.. Audio is way more accessible than text.. I would be tempted to say get an ipod touch with a mick though so you could Audioboo.. Then you can make use of apps and play lists like this..
    ..and of course post your podcast in itunes automatically.

    Aha, have decided to swap networks and get myself an iPhone :-) So will definitely be audioboo-ing. This process was too complicated, and sound quality a little sketchy with my headset mic.
