Microsoft testing app that reads out news

Software giant Microsoft is reportedly testing an app that will sort out the best news stories from the web and use text-to-speech technology to read out article summaries to the users.

Users can save articles for reading later and view the full text of any article the app.

The app called NewsCast pulls in using a built-in browser or a distraction-free reading view.

It has been designed to keep users up to date with the latest news while they are commuting and do not have time to look at smartphones.

Collecting feedback from users is a major focus of the app-developing team.

A feedback button in the app opens an email that includes a three-question survey about what users like, dislike and want from it in the future.

The app will first be available for Apple users.
