We’ve previously taken a look at how to Read Wikipedia on your iPod, but what if you wanted to listen to specific articles from Wikipedia rather than read them?

Pediaphon is a free service which translates Wikipedia articles into synthesized computer speech in the form of MP3 files. This makes it easy for you to grab any article you want to delve into, and listen to it on any music player, mobile phone or directly from your PC.

How did I like it? Well for short articles, I found it reasonably useful. For longer articles…. well, maybe it’s just me - but Pediaphon’s synthesized voice isn’t exactly the most pleasant sounding voice to listen to! Nevertheless, if you feel like some quick e-learning on the way to work, give it a shot.
