Would you rather listen to news than read it? Apple is already on its way to deliver just that. According to reports by TechCrunch, users will soon be able to browse through a variety of podcasts focused on turning media publishers’ articles and news into audio content dubbed ‘Spoken Editions.’

‘On iTunes, podcasts branded “Spoken Edition” will be short-form programs that offer listeners an audio version of the publisher’s written content. That means you could “read” your favorite website or hear the news when you’re doing other things — like walking your dog, commuting to work or working out at the gym, for example,’ they reported.

 

A possibility of such a feature was confirmed when TechCrunch spotted ‘Spoken Editions’ of major publications such as Wired, Time, Mic, Forbes, Playboy among others. These are apparently powered by a service called ‘SpokenLayer’ which essentially creates and distributes audio versions of the written word.

iTunes latest update is expected to be released in October.
