NPR offers ‘takeaway’ news audio

May 28th, 2009 | No Comments | Posted by in Broadcasting, Multimedia

National Public Radio (NPR) has added a nifty button to its online news articles that lets you download audio content on that item.

Certain features are excluded because of rights issues (for example, stories referring to exclusive music tracks), but this simple addition is a nice cross-over between NPR’s wealth of audio content and its website.

It’s also more flexible as it doesn’t require users to listen to a whole programme and can be downloaded as an MP3 for listening at leisure.
