Read The Local News, Learn Swedish

August 9, 2009

I followed a link to The Local, a website of news from Sweden written in English. I discovered it has a cool feature: when you double-click any word, a new window pops up with a dictionary entry in English and Swedish, complete with spoken voice in Swedish.

The company behind the capability is VoiceCorp, none other than the service provider for the Dow Jones Factiva, a text-to-voice solution for business news & information consumers. Pretty cool…
