Chicago, IL – May 3, 2021 – eMagazines, a partner of the world’s largest magazine publishers and the leading technology to transform print magazines into exceptional mobile reading experiences, has launched eMags Studios, an audio service for publishers.
“In early testing with audio narrations, we immediately saw engagement increase within the digital editions we create for our clients,” said Andrew Degenholtz, Founder and President. “Consumers are listening to content now more than ever and adding the option to listen to long-form journalism from top magazine brands is a natural next step.”
eMags Studios allows magazine publishers to transform text content into high-production-value audio without changing their existing workflow, allowing subscribers to integrate magazine journalism into their lives in new ways.
Through these audio services, eMagazines provides publishers with yet another way to engage their customers through state-of-the-art digital storytelling. eMags Studios supports customer acquisition and retention by elevating paywall and subscription content. Audio also quadruples the time that consumers spend with articles, allowing publishers to sell more advertising.
The eMags Studios team is equipped to produce professional narrations of articles using in-house talent, or by working with magazine publishers to capture existing editorial voices virtually. Publishers can also produce their own audio and turn to eMags Studios to add elements like music, voice intros and sound effects.
In addition to expert voiceover production, the eMagazines digital editions are now integrated with the Amazon Polly Neural Text-to-Speech voice service to provide high-quality spoken audio for all magazine articles. This lifelike audio is a valuable tool to accommodate people who are visually impaired.
