Like Radio 4? Love the hidden gems, the quality speech radio, but frustrated with the idea of having to sift through the rest of it? Speechification offers to:
point to the bits we like, the bits you might have missed, the bits that someone might have sneakily recorded.
Finding your own personal relevant and interesting bits is something thatÂ , in theory at least, could be done automaticallyÂ – with APML and other attention data – but while the BBC are looking for ways to “visualise radio” that’s unlikely to be high priority. It is lucky then, that people are willing to do it for free.
