Microsoft has announced that it is making it easier for you to listen to your favorite Microsoft Tech Community Blog articles. The company is introducing a new feature to the platform, text to speech which is powered by Azure Speech Services.

The feature is an assistive technology that reads digital text aloud, similar to the one available in the Microsoft Translator app. Therefore, avid Microsoft followers and watchers will be able to listen to their favorite Microsoft Tech community blogs like a podcast, rather than having to go through the entire blog word for word, ultimately reducing the hassle and strain that one has to go through while reading.
