A new ver­sion of Any­graaf's ePa­per was launched in No­vem­ber.

In the new ver­sion, read­ers be­come lis­ten­ers to the ar­ti­cles pub­lished in Any­graaf’s ePa­per.

The ma­chine read­ing works on a com­put­er, mo­bile phone and tablet. The read­er can choose which sto­ry he wants to lis­ten to and the ma­chine reads the sto­ry. The lis­ten­ing fea­ture al­lows the read­er to lis­ten to the dai­ly news­pa­per, for ex­am­ple in a car, on bus or in the morn­ing while mak­ing and en­joy­ing their break­fast.

In­di­vid­ual ar­ti­cles from the ePa­per can al­so be opened for read­ing in an on­line ver­sion. The sto­ry opens on the news­pa­per’s web­site when you click on it from the ePa­per. This makes it eas­i­er to com­ment and share news if you wish. For ex­am­ple, if there are videos or ad­di­tion­al im­ages in the on­line ver­sion of the sto­ry, you can watch them at the same time.

The read­er who opens the sto­ry in the brows­er can re­turn to the full view of ePa­per at any time and to the point in the mag­a­zine from which he opened the sto­ry. The fea­ture is avail­able when the news­pa­per'’s web­site is im­ple­ment­ed with NeoDi­rect.

Along­side the new fea­tures, the fa­mil­iar ways of us­ing ePa­per is re­tained: the mag­a­zine can still be read as a tra­di­tion­al e-mag­a­zine, page by page or in a spread.

The re­newed ePa­per is al­ready in use in a lo­cal news­pa­pers Ruovesi and Vak­ka-Suomen Sanomat, among oth­ers. The lis­ten­ing fea­ture has been de­vel­oped at the re­quest of cus­tomers.

Next, the ma­chine read­ing will be in­tro­duced on the web­site

Next, the lis­ten­ing fea­ture will be im­ple­ment­ed in on­line ser­vices im­ple­ment­ed with NeoDi­rect.

On­line, the ma­chine read­ing can be linked to in­di­vid­ual news or all con­tent.

In this case, the read­er could, if he or she wish­es, lis­ten to all the sto­ries on the front page, the lat­est news, or the lat­est sto­ries of a sec­tion, such as sports.

With this fea­ture, the con­tent of tra­di­tion­al mag­a­zines can be eas­i­ly con­sumed even in au­dio for­mat with­out the need for the ed­i­tor to record sep­a­rate­ly read ver­sions of the sto­ries. This im­proves the ac­ces­si­bil­i­ty of the con­tent and di­ver­si­fies the op­por­tu­ni­ties to fol­low the news.

The ma­chine read­ing works in Eng­lish, Finnish, Swedish, and Nowe­gian.
