eMagazines partners with Amazon Polly to voice articles

July 7, 2022

In this Amazon guest post, eMagazines CEO and Founder Andrew Degenholtz shares how we utilized Amazon Polly to “voice” articles for school-aged kids.

At eMagazines, we support publishers in bringing high-quality content to readers across digital platforms. Our ReadAlong neural text-to-speech service adds audio to traditional text-first publishing formats, which helps our customers deepen their connection to their readers.

For example, we helped TIME for Kids launch a digital version of its magazine with audio article narration to support students learning to read. This premium subscription helped users transition to digital when the pandemic forced schools to close, and families needed educational tools to supplement classroom learning materials.
