There's a disconnect between the media and the public. Despite a large amount of news content produced every day the information often doesn't reach the users. Long working hours, paying the bills and taking care of the family take up most of the users' day. There's not much time and energy left to get informed on the latest news.
Audiosume is one solution to the serious issue. By presenting the latest news in a short form with voice, users can listen to the news while getting ready for work, commuting or other important tasks.
