Audio solutions featuring Amazon Polly

June 10, 2021

eMagazines uses its state-of-the-art digital platforms to connect publishers and readers in exciting new ways. And now, with Amazon Polly, we provide high-quality audio editions with lifelike speech for all magazine articles. In addition to reading, users can now listen to compelling stories from their favorite brands while following along with highlighted text on their laptop or mobile device.

Audio content is quickly becoming a preferred method for consuming content. This is a game-changer for magazine publishers … one that provides a new way to engage with readers. Amazon’s Polly Neural Text-to-Speech voice service features:

• Male and female voice options
• Newscaster or conversational speaking style
• Real-time streaming with unlimited replays
• Multiple language options

Now subscribers can control their listening experience by adjusting playback speeds and following along with real-time text highlighting. This tool also allows publishers to accommodate visually impaired readers, which ensures quality magazine journalism is more accessible to all.

Incorporating audio versions of articles is proven to support customer acquisition and retention, increasing subscription and advertising revenue over time. We’re excited to be able to use our platforms to help magazine publishers continue to grow their digital presence.
