Discovered bbc backstage
this morning whilst researching for my lecture on Web services and REST. As an experiment, I thought I'd add a page of RSS-derived links to the FOLD. I shouldn't still be surprised by this, but it only took a few lines to add a primitive page.
I've put the demo up on the exist demo site. There is also a version which generates Voice+XML to make a real newsreader. It needs Opera 8 with the speech extension and there is only a selection of two American voices but it handles the task very well.
