Vocalyze Media Announces New Brand, Partners, Apps, New Website and Integration with WordPress(August 18, 2011)
Waltham, MA (PRWEB) August 18, 2011
Vocalyze Media, which offers advanced real-time streaming Web-text-to-speech technology, today revealed new clients, new Android and iPhone apps, a new brand and a new website design plus a new widget for WordPress. The company, founded in 2010, was previously known as VoKnow.
The companys flagship product, Vocalyze, a mobile audio news and entertainment service, has launched with two high profile web publishers, allowing them to stream audio versions of their articles: Mass High Tech (masshightech.com) and The Good Men Project (goodmenproject.com).
The company has also released Android and iPhone apps, available for download in the Android Marketplace and in the Apple iPhone Store.
Instead of being tied to reading on a screen, Vocalyze streams audio of news stories, tweets, or other text posted online in a streamlined, customizable app, like a personal news radio station. No synchronization or downloading is required. Vocalyze helps people to be more productive," says Frank Qiu, Vocalyze Media CEO. "During our beta period we have seen the average user spend 37 minutes per visit listening to content they wouldn't otherwise have read or know about. Vocalyze users can listen at their desktops or on a smart phone when they are on the go. This is also a new way to repurchase content easily and inexpensively, and for content developers to have a new revenue stream.
"This partnership will make it easier for our audience to access our articles wherever and whenever they want, whether on the computer screen or listening," said Lisa Hickey, CEO and Publisher, The Good Men Project. Vocalyze makes it simple to hear our stories while commuting, working out or multitasking at your computer."
"Our readers are technology-savvy business people," said Douglas Banks, Publisher, Mass High Tech. We not only report on technology and innovation in New England for those readers, but also support such work by partnering with local startups working to create new channels for media and information."
Vocalyze Media is gearing up sales, marketing and customer support operations.
