Wouldn’t it be wonderful if instead of having to read each long Wikipedia page we could simply press a button and have it read to us? Well, that is exactly what Wikipedia and some engineers are trying to make possible. Wikipedia has approached the KTH Royal Institute of Technology university in Sweden to help develop a software that will allow users to have sections read to them. They were approached because they have had previous experience with other text-to-speech technologies. The servers for this technology will be hosted by Wikipedia. However, it will also be made available to anyone as an open-source platform. Wikipedia users would be able to record text and correct mistakes. A further development being planned is the ability of a recording to correct future transcriptions. The initial development of the text-to-speech software will be in Swedish. This is because the funding is coming from the Swedish Post and Telecom Authority. After it is developed in Swedish, it will support basic English and then move on to Arabic. After that, it will be expanded to support the rest of the two hundred and eighty languages.
