Gary wrote recently of Speakwire and Speegle, which let you listen to rather than read RSS feeds and search results. Advanced Chatbot Solutions offers similar services. The company's NewsBot Demo lets you enter any feed and then watch and hear as "Halo" reads the feed contents back to you. Want search results read to you? Visit the home page, then click on the "Talk to Halo" link on the left-hand side of the page. A new window will appear. Once you see Halo, click on the link below her image. Then type in "google" plus the words you want to search for, such as "google cars." You'll then be read the first result from Google. Oddly, however, the number of results listed within the chatbot demo I've found will be much lower than what Google reports.
