TIP OF THE WEEK – Make Good Use of Your Drive Time

Make Good Use of Your Drive Time
October 21st, 2011

Make good use of your commute to work time. Turn off the radio. Most people have a 23 minute commute. That is enough time to listen to an article or two on your smart phone each way to work using some cool technology.

You can go to to some of your favorite financial websites like http://www.seekingalpha.com and copy the text of an article into a text-to-speech web app. Or you could copy portions of a quarterly financial statement to better understand how the company makes money. Threads from discussion boards make great audio articles. They are rife with pros and cons of a stock. You can begin listening to your article In about the time it would take to print the article.

I use a text to speech web app called SpokenText. It has a free trial that does not require a credit card. I pay $30.00 a year fee to use it. I use it extensively everyday.


There a over a dozen natural sounding voices, but I use for consistently (Mike, Teagan, Charles, and Bob). These voices do not sound like the robotic voice of Stephen Hawking.
