The allEars player lets your audience listen to your blog posts, and streams all your content using a playlist fed via RSS.
Use this plugin to embed the allEars player into your posts, or use it to add more depth to your allEars audio channel. This plugin allows you to tune your content to sound more like a podcast: add sound effects, a background soundtrack, or use multiple voices. Keep on reading to find out all you can do to enhance the audio version of your blog with this plugin.

Using the plugin
When you enable this plugin, you’ll see an “allEars” meta box in your post editor. The meta box helps you add some useful properties to your post:
Voice: choose if the main voice reading the post should be a male or a female voice. You can alternate multiple voices in a post by inserting the [aetag voice] shortcode wherever you want the voice to change.
Language: tell the allEars player the main language of the post. You can have the post read with different accents by using language codes like “en-US”, “en-GB” or “en-AU”. If your post includes foreign words or sentences, you can tag them using the [aetag lang] shortcode, and the allEars player will do its best to pronounce them as they should.
Background audio: specify the URL of a soundtrack to play while your content is being read, and tune its volume. Your background music can do wonders when you add pauses between sentences, using the [aetag p] shortcode in your text.
In addition, you can use the following shortcodes in your text:
- [aetag fga]: (for “foreground audio”) to insert audio recordings or sound effects.
- [aetag sub]: (for “substitute”) to instruct the allEars player to read something differently from what’s written on the page (like “Read Colorado when I write CO”).
- [aetag ignore]: useful if there’s a section you’d rather want to stay on the written page, but not be read aloud.
If you choose to have the allEars widget on your posts, it can be added automatically to the top of each post, or you can control its exact location on the page using the shortcode [allears-widget].
