More and more bloggers may become podcasters due to the latest offering from San Francisco-based Odiogo.

The software company launched an application that extracts textual blog posts or articles from Web sites and converts them into lightweight MP3 files almost immediately. 

Those audio files are then available for download onto the iPods, PDAs, MP3 player and other mobile devices, enabling fans of a blog get 'audio-to-go.' Users will also be able to rewind, play and fast-forward through an audio version of each post. 

Odiogo's text-to-speech technology takes freshly posted RSS content and observes punctuation and natural speech patterns to create audio content. The company is constantly improving on the listening experience.  

In order to participate, bloggers can sign up for free at www.odiogo.com. Listeners subscribe via a button displayed on the content provider's site. Updates are store on Odiogo's data center and downloaded automatically when users synchronize their playing devices.
