Our founding story:
BotTalk started as part of the Next Media Accelerator with the goal of changing the way people read newspapers today. This also made us well-known on the German newspaper market. Currently we are dubbing the news of Hamburger Abendblatt, NOZ Medien, Augsburger Allgemeine, Hamburger Morgenpost.
BotTalk is also an official partner of dpa.
This is how our business idea transforms the content industry: :
Today, content is already primarily consumed via audio channels. Be it YouTube videos running in the background or podcasts, which are currently experiencing a boom. The audio book market has been growing rapidly in recent years, but publishers cannot keep up with the demand for audio. Professional speakers are expensive, production is time-consuming plus distribution on all channels - from Spotify to smart speakers: these are the main problems that make audio complicated for publishers.
With BotTalk, these problems are solved. Our voices sound very close to human speakers, production takes minutes instead of hours and we distribute automatically - everywhere.
