AudiBrow uses AI text-to-voice to create multiple news readers

A read-to-me news app uses multiple sources and multiple voices to deliver news in a different way. AudiBrow uses AI text-to-voice software to present news from publications such as The Washington Post, The Economist, The Guardian, Reuters, BBC, The Verge, TechCrunch, and others.

  • Voices are male and female and are attached to each story.
  • The user experience is having the news read by a number of voices instead of one.
  • Stories are aggregated in five sections: technology, business, sports, politics, and educational.
  • Future plans are to support ‘all online news and content-based websites.’

The company calls its product ‘the first AI-powered news app.’ It is available for both IOS and Android devices.


  • A number of news organizations offer audio versions of their stories using single AI voices. This seems to be the first aggregator and the first to use a variety of voices.
  • It is especially suited to podcast listeners looking for a ‘grab and go’ way to consume the news.
  • This is an example of ‘the AI difference.’ It is too expensive to have multiple human news readers for any one newscast. In an AI system, voices are a software tweak.
  • The underlying text-to-voice model is not disclosed and provides human-like pauses and inflections.
