Wikipedia to hear

The University Hagen has implemented a system which read wikipedia articles to you.

The system call pediaphon generates an audio file from a wikipedia article and plays it for you.

In germany you can even send a sms to the system, it calls you and reads the article to you.

    Pediaphon is pretty old and it has enhanced pretty good. BUT you can just “choose” (not much of a choice) the MP3 format.
    I just sent the man behind pediaphon to suggest a choice for a free format (like Ogg Vorbis).

    PS: The system doesn’t call you, you have to call it after the SMS.

    Ogg is now a choice at Pediaphon🙂
