Podcast Your Blog.
Ages ago, I said to myself “I must write more on disability issues and accessibility”, but I never got around to it, so to rectify that this is a quick guide to podcasting your blog.
By podcasting your blog you make it accessible to thousands, if not tens of thousands, of partially sighted or blind Web users.
Also podcasting means that users can download your posts and listen to them on an MP3 player or similar, at their leisure.
There are a few companies that do it, but the easiest that I found was odiogo, here’s how to do it.
1. Just sign up to their free service.
2. Provide the web link of your blog.
3. Give them your email address.
Oh and put a link on your blog, mine is http://podcasts.odiogo.com/modernityblog/podcasts-html.php
They provide instructions on how to add a Listen button, etc here.
That’s wasn’t hard, was it?
Now blog owners there’s no excuse for not making your blog more accessible.
Update 1: Ops, I forgot, it takes the text from the RSS feed, so if you want the *full* text converted then you’ll have to make sure that your settings are correct, see for more details.
