Law Times audio

The Law Times, no stranger to former Toronto Sun employees, is now providing audio with some of their online text stories for the benefit of the visually impaired and visitors with tired eyes.

Audio readings of news stories are slowly - much too slowly - becoming a bonus feature for online publications. TSF noted in January how singer Bono was writing and taping his columns for the New York Times.

The current Law Times audio is for a story about media being given permission to use Tweet or live blogging from inside the courtroom during the bribery trial of Ottawa Mayor Larry O’Brien.

Nothing new, notes the paper. The London Free Press has been filing electronic updates from the Bandido's murder trial for several weeks.
