Bad news for TV News Anchors.
Microsoft has been testing a new app called NewsCast.
The app makes a playlist of news story summaries and reads them to the users. The program is created by the Bing team and is meant to make traveling more productive.
NewsCast reportedly uses Bing's text-to-speech program to read out things that last 30 second each.
So far, it appears that the app's voice is not as natural as Cortana's but still better than Wolf Blitzer's.
