4. Bring the Internet to TiVo > 62. Listen to Your Email

Listen to Your Email

Listen to your email as an MP3 audio stream—just because you can.

Just when you thought pictures of your email [Hack #61] was over the top, someone had to go and take it even further. Instead of rendering your email to a PNG image, let’s render it to audio.

A combination of the script from [Hack #61] and the Microsoft Speech Object Library (http://www.microsoft.com/speech/) reads the first few lines of each email message, rendering them as a temporary WAV audio file. That WAV file can then be converted using bladeenc (http://bladeenc.mp3.no/) or the like to an MP3 file that TiVo can understand and play. If all goes well, we can move the MP3 into an area that can be “seen” by the TiVo Media Desktop.
